ADA: Pathway to Stop Diabetes Research Awards

Pathway to Stop Diabetes is a bold, innovative initiative designed to radically transform diabetes research. Our Vision is simple yet revolutionary: find a new generation of brilliant scientists at the peak of their creativity, and provide them with freedom, autonomy, and the financial and professional resources to set them on the road to breakthrough discoveries.

Pathway accepts nominations for exceptional investigators with medical and scientific backgrounds who propose innovative basic, clinical, translational, behavioral, epidemiological and health services research relevant to any type of diabetes, diabetes-related disease state or complication. Pathway solicits nominations for candidates in all disciplines as applied to diabetes including medicine, biology, chemistry, computing, physics, mathematics and engineering. In addition, nomination of scientists from diverse backgrounds, including minority groups that are underrepresented in biomedical research, is strongly encouraged.

Institutions may nominate a maximum of one investigator per grant cycle. The nomination can be in one of the following Pathway award types:

  • Initiator;
  • Accelerator; or
  • Visionary

Nominations are accepted from U.S. accredited academic and non-profit research institutions. For the purpose of this award, an institution generally includes all associated departments, medical schools and graduate schools.

The Carver College of Medicine’s Diabetes Research Center will be overseeing review and selection of University of Iowa nominee for this year’s American Diabetes Association Pathway to Stop Diabetes Research Award.
