Diabetes Action Canada is launching its first Intercentre Internship competition for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and research professionals interested in Patient-Oriented Research (POR) in diabetes and its complications. The goal of this award is to promote networking and optimal integration of trainees into the Diabetes Action Canada (DAC) Network and the Canadian diabetes research community. Up to two (2) annual internships will be awarded to trainees. The DAC Network invites researchers who are PIs or Co-Is of the DAC Network to propose collaborative projects in the areas of diabetes and its complications and for which a trainee will complete his training in another laboratory (in another research centre). This project will involve a DAC Network PI or Co-I with one or more collaborators of another Patient-Oriented Research centre. Every collaborator must be a member of the DAC Network (or another SPOR Network) and participate in its activities.
Eligibility criteria and methods of evaluation are described below. Successful candidates will receive financial support of a maximum of $10,000 for a one-year period to allow the establishment of the trainee-based collaboration between the collaborators.
