NIDDK Exploratory Research Grant (R21) Program
Per NOT-DK-12-001, NIDDK will no longer co-sponsor the NIH Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant Program (Parent R21) and will not accept any applications (new or resubmission) in response to the Parent R21 Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) after the expiration of PA-10-069 (i.e., for receipt dates after Cycle III for funding consideration during the May 2012 Council round). NIDDK will not accept any R21 applications submitted to the Parent R21 FOA for consideration in Council rounds after the May 2012 whether those appplications are submitted under the expiring Parent R21 FOA PA-10-069 or to the new Parent R21 FOA PA-11-261.
Please note that NIDDK will continue to accept some R21 applications for pilot projects for clinical studies/trials and secondary data analyses under separate Program Announcements.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to consult with appropriate NIDDK program staff when considering any application.
