Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

Background

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) occurs when cells of the immune system attack and destroy insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. Autoimmune destruction and loss of insulin results in an increase in blood glucose levels that over time damage a wide variety of organ systems.  In order to survive, patients must compensate for the loss of insulin production through daily insulin administration. Even with close attention to maintenance of normal blood glucose levels, many patients will experience significant diabetes-associated complications in major organ systems. These diabetic complications include cardiovascular disease, end-stage kidney disease, blindness, sensory and autonomic nerve damage, and amputations. While our understanding of the role played by genetics in promoting disease risk has advanced significantly over recent years, many key questions remain regarding the root causes of autoimmune destruction in Type 1 diabetes and its downstream pathologic consequences. A more thorough mechanistic understanding of the T1D disease process in at risk individuals, as well as the development of new approaches to ensure maintenance of normoglycemia in affected patients, will ultimately lead to new avenues to explore for disease prevention and therapy.  

The goal of this initiative is to support bold and creative research projects that confront major challenges in Type 1 diabetes research. Collaborative investigative teams or individual scientists with novel perspectives, new ideas and innovative approaches are encouraged to apply.  Studies should address major unmet needs and/or compelling opportunities and have the potential to dramatically advance the field. Successful projects will be expected to have a significant impact on Type 1 diabetes research and/or therapy.

Research Topics

This initiative seeks to foster innovation and creativity in investigators focused on major unanswered questions in Type 1 diabetes research. Pioneering investigations across the translational spectrum are encouraged and will be considered responsive to this FOA. Multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary teams attacking fundamental issues or large intractable problems are particularly encouraged to apply.

This FOA solicits applications focused on areas of opportunity relevant to Type 1 diabetes identified in the draft diabetes research plan, “Advances and Emerging Opportunities in Diabetes Research: A Strategic Planning Report of the DMICC,” available at http://www2.niddk.nih.gov/AboutNIDDK/ReportsAndStrategicPlanning/DiabetesPlan.  Specifically the FOA solicits applications in four areas of T1D research highlighted in the draft Strategic Planning Report:  Autoimmunity, Imaging and Biomarker Development, Diabetic Complications, and Engineering the Artificial Pancreas.  In addressing major issues or barriers in T1D research, responsive studies should employ interdisciplinary approaches that capitalize on clinical resources, as well as emerging technologies, tools, and model systems. Examples of advanced tools and technologies to be employed might include:

Questions to be explored in this initiative include:

Autoimmunity: What properties of immune cells and their pancreatic targets are responsible for the selective destruction of beta cells in T1D patients?

Examples of how this question may be explored include:

Imaging and Biomarker Development: Can we develop imaging assays and/or biomarkers capable of measuring early events in the development and progression of T1D?

Examples of how this question may be examined include:

Diabetic Complications: What are the precise molecular pathways and sequence of events that lead to organ damage and dysfunction in T1D (including diabetes-induced damage to renal, nervous, cardiovascular, visual, urinary, gastrointestinal, as well as other systems)?

Examples of how this area may be explored include:

Engineering the Artificial Pancreas: Can a closed loop artificial pancreas system be designed that will maintain euglycemia and avoid hypoglycemia?

Examples of how this question may be addressed include:

Section V. Application Review Information

1. Criteria

Overall Impact

Reviewers will provide an overall impact/priority score to reflect their assessment of the likelihood for the project to exert a sustained, powerful influence on the research field(s) involved, in consideration of the following review criteria and additional review criteria (as applicable for the project proposed).

Scored Review Criteria

Reviewers will consider each of the review criteria below in the determination of scientific merit, and give a separate score for each. An application does not need to be strong in all categories to be judged likely to have major scientific impact. For example, a project that by its nature is not innovative may be essential to advance a field.

Significance

Does the project address an important problem or a critical barrier to progress in the field? If the aims of the project are achieved, how will scientific knowledge, technical capability, and/or clinical practice be improved? How will successful completion of the aims change the concepts, methods, technologies, treatments, services, or preventative interventions that drive this field? Does the project address a major unsolved problem or barrier that is unique to Type 1 Diabetes research? If successful, will the project dramatically advance or alter the course of Type 1 Diabetes research?

Investigator(s)    

Are the PD/PIs, collaborators, and other researchers well suited to the project? If Early Stage Investigators or New Investigators, or in the early stages of independent careers, do they have appropriate experience and training? If established, have they demonstrated an ongoing record of accomplishments that have advanced their field(s)? If the project is collaborative or multi-PD/PI, do the investigators have complementary and integrated expertise; are their leadership approach, governance and organizational structure appropriate for the project? Do the PIs provide evidence of a unique capacity for creativity?  Does the track record of the PIs reflect a history of high impact research and publications?  Do the PIs bring new perspectives or expertise to the field of T1D research? Does the project dramatically diverge from ongoing work in the PIs' laboratories?

Innovation

Does the application challenge and seek to shift current research or clinical practice paradigms by utilizing novel theoretical concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions? Are the concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions novel to one field of research or novel in a broad sense? Is a refinement, improvement, or new application of theoretical concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions proposed? Does the application reflect an exceptional, unique or particularly creative strategy that has not been applied to the problem before?

Approach

Are the overall strategy, methodology, and analyses well-reasoned and appropriate to accomplish the specific aims of the project? Are potential problems, alternative strategies, and benchmarks for success presented? If the project is in the early stages of development, will the strategy establish feasibility and will particularly risky aspects be managed? 

If the project involves clinical research, are the plans for 1) protection of human subjects from research risks, and 2) inclusion of minorities and members of both sexes/genders, as well as the inclusion of children, justified in terms of the scientific goals and research strategy proposed? Are any high risk elements directed toward high reward outcomes? If extensive preliminary data is not provided for new, novel or high risk studies, is appropriate justification provided in the form of literature citations and data from other sources to support the proposed experimental aims?

Environment

Will the scientific environment in which the work will be done contribute to the probability of success? Are the institutional support, equipment and other physical resources available to the investigators adequate for the project proposed? Will the project benefit from unique features of the scientific environment, subject populations, or collaborative arrangements?

Additional Review Criteria

As applicable for the project proposed, reviewers will evaluate the following additional items while determining scientific and technical merit, and in providing an overall impact/priority score, but will not give separate scores for these items.

Protections for Human Subjects

For research that involves human subjects but does not involve one of the six categories of research that are exempt under 45 CFR Part 46, the committee will evaluate the justification for involvement of human subjects and the proposed protections from research risk relating to their participation according to the following five review criteria: 1) risk to subjects, 2) adequacy of protection against risks, 3) potential benefits to the subjects and others, 4) importance of the knowledge to be gained, and 5) data and safety monitoring for clinical trials.

For research that involves human subjects and meets the criteria for one or more of the six categories of research that are exempt under 45 CFR Part 46, the committee will evaluate: 1) the justification for the exemption, 2) human subjects involvement and characteristics, and 3) sources of materials. For additional information on review of the Human Subjects section, please refer to the Human Subjects Protection and Inclusion Guidelines.

Inclusion of Women, Minorities, and Children 

When the proposed project involves clinical research, the committee will evaluate the proposed plans for inclusion of minorities and members of both genders, as well as the inclusion of children. For additional information on review of the Inclusion section, please refer to the Human Subjects Protection and Inclusion Guidelines.

Vertebrate Animals

The committee will evaluate the involvement of live vertebrate animals as part of the scientific assessment according to the following five points: 1) proposed use of the animals, and species, strains, ages, sex, and numbers to be used; 2) justifications for the use of animals and for the appropriateness of the species and numbers proposed; 3) adequacy of veterinary care; 4) procedures for limiting discomfort, distress, pain and injury to that which is unavoidable in the conduct of scientifically sound research including the use of analgesic, anesthetic, and tranquilizing drugs and/or comfortable restraining devices; and 5) methods of euthanasia and reason for selection if not consistent with the AVMA Guidelines on Euthanasia. For additional information on review of the Vertebrate Animals section, please refer to the Worksheet for Review of the Vertebrate Animal Section.
