The Diabetes, Obesity, & Nutrition Strategic Clinical Network (DON-SCN) is very pleased to announce the 2017-2018 Seed Grant funding competition. This opportunity is designed to allow researchers to collect data that would strengthen the rationale for larger funding proposals as well as potentially foster new collaborations. The research should have the potential to prevent disease or improve care for patients at risk of or experiencing diabetes, obesity, or nutrition-related health problems. The maximum amount of a single award is 10,000. The grant is nonrenewable. The total amount of funding available in this competition is $40,000.
Projects must have one Principal Investigator who will be either a faculty member in one of Alberta’s academic institutions (Universities or affiliated institutions) OR appointed staff at Alberta Health Services but not employed by the DON SCN.
