American Diabetes Association and Lilly Clinical Research Award: Diabetes Care in Older Adults

American Diabetes Association and Lilly Clinical Research Award: 
Diabetes Care in Older Adults
It is currently estimated that at least 25 percent of people aged 65 and older have diabetes, and that percentage is expected to grow as the U.S. population ages. Diabetes in older adults leads to increases in morbidity, decreased functional and mental status, and reduced life expectancy.
Although significant evidence exist that lowering blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol reduces the risk of diabetes complications, older adults have typically been excluded from the studies that led to this evidence.
The American Diabetes Association and Eli Lilly and Company are pleased to announce a call for applications for original and innovative research proposals to further identify the safest and most effective means of diabetes treatment for the older adult population.
Application Guidelines: Clinical and translational studies focused on improving the evidence base and understanding of the goals, barriers, and effects of treatments and interventions in older adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes will be considered.
Support: $550,000 maximum over a three-year term.
Deadline: September 16, 2013, for anticipated funding beginning January 1, 2014.
