The aim with the Non-Diabetic Endocrinology – Collaborative Project Grants is to:
- Strengthen clinical collaborative research within non-diabetic endocrinology.
- Position Denmark at an international level in improving prevention and care for patients with non-diabetic endocrine disorders.
The research projects must be clinical and collaborative and focus on endocrine disorders within e.g.; thyroid, calcium metabolism, pituitary/adrenal/neuroendocrine and gonadal disorders. Projects within diabetes research are not eligible.
Due to the collaborative purpose of the grant, the research project must comprise applicants from a minimum of three different Danish university hospitals (the main applicant and a minimum of two co-applicants must be from different Danish university hospitals), in solving a challenge within the area of clinical non-diabetic endocrinology. This could be accomplished by establishing national cohorts and/or infrastructure or by other means. International scientific and clinical collaboration on the research project where relevant is strongly encouraged.
The main applicant
- The main applicant must be anchored at a Danish university hospital.
