US NIH National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive Kidney Diseases: Lymphatics in Health and Disease in the Digestive System (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

This award supports the investigation of aspects of lymphatic vessel physiology, development and pathophysiology related to health and diseases of the digestive system. Studies may focus on understanding the factors that control local lymphatic vessel functional anatomy and physiology and development during health or disease in this system and its organs, and the mechanisms by which alterations of lymphatic vessel function affect organ function.

This opportunity uses the R01 Research Project Grant funding mechanism.

Funding & Duration

Grants are each worth up to USD $250,000 (approx. AUD $354,000) per year, for a maximum period of five years.


Applications will not be considered if their major focus is on immune mechanisms, the role of lymphatics in cancer metastasis or the study of lymphatic vessels in organs other than those from the digestive system.
