The UK Medical Research Council (MRC), the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) are pleased to announce the up-coming launch of the UK-Canada Diabetes Research Team Grants.

Call Opens: 11th June 2019

Deadline: 28th August 2019 (4pm)

Funding: CAN: $450,000, UK: £333,333

Duration: Up to 3 years

The focus of the collaborative projects will be upon ‘mechanisms and translational solutions’. Projects should focus on one or more of the following key diabetes knowledge gaps:

  • Genetic variability.
  • Molecular mechanisms, including immune-mediated beta cell injury.
  • Human implementation pilot studies to reverse type 2 diabetes through physical activity and nutrition. Welcoming applications that include researchers with expertise in social sciences, in addition to biomedical researchers. Social scientists can bring an understanding of, for example, individual behaviour, economic evaluations, inequalities, the wider political economy, and wider environmental influences.
  • This is meant to focus on research applicable to UK and Canadian settings, not to global health.
