American Diabetes Association (ADA) Pathway Award Program

We are soliciting internal letters of intent from investigators or teams of investigators looking to submit proposals to the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Pathway Award program. As an institution we may submit one proposal for this limited submission competition.

ADA Pathway supports innovative basic, clinical, translational, epidemiological, behavioral, or health services research relevant to any diabetes type, diabetes-related disease state, or diabetes complication. The Association seeks exceptional candidates from a broad range of disciplines, including medicine, biology, chemistry, computing, physics, mathematics and engineering.

A full description of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Pathway Award program may be found on the Pathway Awards program website.

Faculty members or teams of investigators interested in submitting an ADA proposal must first submit an internal mandatory letter of intent to the Office of Research. Letters of intent should be no more than one page and identify the project scope, principal investigators, collaborators, and partner organizations. Along with the LOI, provide a one page project description, and CVs or biosketches for all PI’s and Co-PI’s.

Internal letters of intent must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. March 31, 2015 as a word or pdf document to, with ADA and the last name of the lead PI(s) in the subject line.

If the Office of Research receives more than one letter of intent, we will run an internal competition using the letters of intent and supplemental materials to determine the project that will move forward with full submission to the ADA program by July 1, 2015. Anyone who does not submit a letter of intent to the Office of Research will not be permitted to submit a full proposal to the ADA.
