-The purpose of this RFA is to enhance our understanding of the effects of Type 1 diabetes on the development of new blood vessels from preexisting vessels (angiogenesis), in order to open new therapeutic avenues to treat diabetic vasculopathies. This RFA seeks basic and clinical studies on the mechanisms of abnormal angiogenesis seen in the complications of diabetes in wound healing, nephropathy, neuropathy and peripheral, coronary and cerebral arterial diseases.
-Applications are invited from multiple investigators conducting collaborative research projects that foster sharing of expertise between the angiogenesis and diabetes fields.
-The participating institutes plan on contributing $3 million to fund 5-10 new R01 awards with project periods ranging from 2-4 years.
-Non-profit or for-profit organizations are eligible, including public or private institutions and domestic and foreign institutions.
-Investigators may submit more than one application as part of different collaborative groups. There should be no scientific or budgetary overlap.
