JDRF International: Early-Career Patient-Oriented Diabetes Research Awards 2016

The JDRF Early-Career Patient-Oriented Diabetes Research Awards scheme is designed to provide crucial support to investigators who plan to pursue a career in diabetes-related clinical investigation. Awards are made in the later stages of training and include the ability for recipients to transition to independent faculty or research appointments.

Funding & Duration

Funding is awarded at US $150,000 (approx. AUD $207,000) per year for up to 5 years, including up to 10% for indirect costs, and generally not renewable after 5 years.


The Early Career Patient-Oriented Diabetes Research Award is intended for clinical researchers at a relatively early stage of their independent career. Clinical researchers who have received their first faculty-level appointment less than 5 years before the submission date are eligible to apply for this award.

Applicants must have an MD or MD-PhD, hold an appointment or joint appointment in a subspecialty of clinical medicine in a clinical department, and conduct human clinical research. In exceptional circumstances, non-MD candidates will be considered if their work is likely to contribute significantly to a clinical outcome.

There are no citizenship requirements for this program. Research may be conducted at foreign and domestic, for-profit and nonprofit, and public and private organisations – such as universities, colleges, hospitals, laboratories, units of state and local governments, and eligible agencies of the federal government.
