Request for Proposals: Automated Insulin Delivery Initiative

Request for Proposals: Automated Insulin Delivery Initiative

LOI Submission Deadline: January 15, 2014

Over the past decade, advances in medical device technology have had significant impact on monitoring, management and treatment of type 1 diabetes (T1D). However, data from the T1D Exchange demonstrates that T1D is still not a safe or well-managed disease, despite using today’s tools.  Thus, the goal of the Automated Insulin Delivery Initiative (AIDI) of The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust (HCT) Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) Program is to accelerate the development and regulatory approval of automated insulin delivery systems to improve the management and care of T1D.

Since 2009, HCT has made major investments in research, technology, systems and outreach, with a goal of improving the lives of people living with T1D. HCT has been actively funding advances in technologies that decrease the burden and improve outcomes for people living with the disease. With the AIDI funding opportunity, HCT seeks projects that advance the automated delivery of insulin to manage glycemic variability of people with T1D.  This includes, but is not limited, to: fully external systems, fully implanted systems, mixed external and implanted systems, and handheld controller, software & connectivity driven system approaches which will contribute to greater efficacy in treatment.

There are four broad areas of interest for this funding opportunity:

Fully External Systems

Fully Implanted Systems

Mixed External and Implanted Systems

Handheld Controller, Software & Connectivity

Upon review of your completed LOI, eligible grantees will be invited to submit a Full Proposal.

Applicant organizations incorporated outside of the United States are required to complete the international LOI application in order for the Trust to determine if the organization is equivalent to a US-based public charity. If an international applicant fails to meet equivalency determination, expenditure responsibility rules governing grants to for-profit organizations will be followed throughout the remainder of the application process.

If you have any questions please refer to the frequently asked questions http://helmsleytrust.org/media/uploads/2__aidi_rfp_faqs_final.pdf prior to emailing the Trust at T1DTechnology@helmsleytrust.org. For technical assistance with the online application, please contact grants@helmsleytrust.org. Telephone calls will not be accepted.

Call for Expressions of Interest: Small Molecule Screens for Beta Cell Regeneration and Survival

Call for Expressions of Interest: Small Molecule Screens for Beta Cell Regeneration and Survival

Expression of Interest Deadline: 12/18/2013

JDRF and the California Institute for Biomedical Research (Calibr) invite Expressions of Interest from investigators to participate in the JDRF-Calibr Translational Academic Research Partnership (TARP).
Researchers who have identified potential drug targets, pathways or screening approaches to promote beta cell regeneration and/or survival are encouraged to respond.

This program is designed to give investigators access to complete high-throughput small molecule screening capabilities and associated support, including assay development, hit identification and triaging, hit characterization, and structure-activity relationship studies.

Working closely with scientists at Calibr, investigators will identify and characterize novel modulators of targets, pathways, or cellular phenotypes relevant to islet biology and the restoration or preservation of beta cell mass and function in type 1 diabetes (T1D).

It is anticipated the newly discovered small molecule modulators will serve as research tool compounds to further dissect biological pathways, validate drug targets and provide starting points for more advanced medicinal chemistry/drug refinement.
