The Joint ROTRF/JDRF grant awards competition is now completed.
The Roche Organ Transplantation Research Foundation (ROTRF) has been informed by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF) that the JDRF will no longer be participating in the ROTRF/JDRF Initiative.
JDRF is committed to its mission of curing type 1 diabetes and its complications through the support of research, and will fund a significant amount of type 1-related research this year; but the foundation has made a number of cutbacks in projects as a result of current economic conditions. All investigators who have already been awarded a joint ROTRF/JDRF grant will continue to be supported until the planned completion date.
The ROTRF remains committed to its mission of supporting research relevant to organ transplantation also applied to the diabetes area and continues to welcome submission of applications through its Grant Awards Programme.
All investigators who have already been awarded a joint ROTRF/JDRF grant will continue to be supported until the planned completion date.
The ROTRF and JDRF request grantees to regularely submit Project reports along with attached abstracts, reprints and manuscripts of the Project. The format for the submission of such reports can be found at Submission of ROTRF/JDRF Project Reports >>
