The Yale Diabetes Research Center is accepting applications from Yale faculty for one-year pilot and feasibility project grants to fund collaborative research projects in the amount of $30,000. The grants, which will begin on February 1, 2022, provide seed money for investigators to explore the feasibility of diabetes/metabolism-related studies and to obtain sufficient data to further pursue such lines of investigation via other funding mechanisms.

The DRC Pilot and Feasibility program has been specifically designed to foster the work of young investigators beginning a career in diabetes research to encourage investigators to study problems in diabetes and metabolic diseases, and new collaborative associations that involve the participation of investigators from more than one department at Yale.

For eligibility criteria, review “Yale DRC Announcement” in Related Documents.

The application deadline is December 10, 2021. Contact Kathleen Marcucio ( for an application, which must be submitted by email.

Yale’s Section of Endocrinology & Metabolism works to improve the health of individuals with endocrine and metabolic diseases by advancing scientific knowledge; applying new information to patient care; and training the next generation of physicians and scientists to become leaders in the field.
