The Diabetic Complications Consortium provide access to multiple funding mechanisms to enhance research activities that use the DiaComp infrastructure. These funding programs are open to the public and submissions are variable based on the program. This page provides information regarding the current funding programs available and will be updated regularly to reflect any changes or additions.

There is strong evidence that diabetic complications are linked via dysregulation of common pathways. The Diabetic Complications Consortium (DiaComp) promotes communication and collaboration between research communities investigating similar pathologic mechanisms in different organs by organizing an annual scientific meeting and funding new basic and translational research activities.

Applications for the Pilot & Feasibility Funding Program are no longer being accepted.
The DiaComp program partners with the NIDDK Diabetes Research Centers to support summer research experiences for first- and second-year medical students as part of the NIDDK Medical Student Research Program in Diabetes. ( This program offers first- and second-year medical students the opportunity to conduct mentored research in diabetes and diabetic complications at one of the NIDDK-funded Diabetes Research centers. ( DiaComp students also participate in a core curriculum of seminars on research approaches as well as a variety of clinical and research topics in diabetes and diabetic complications. At the conclusion of the summer, each student presents his/her work at the NIDDK Medical Student Research Program research symposium, which provides a venue for students to meet, share their research, and to learn about career pathways and opportunities in NIDDK-related professions.

Students: applications for the 2023 summer program are now CLOSED. The Summer Student Opportunities Program will re-open in late Fall 2023.
