JDRF recognizes that additional signals increase system complexity, and hence is looking to identify those signals which provide most benefit in reducing burden, both to the user and in terms of system complexity and cost. Applications would be funded under the Strategic Research Agreement mechanism. Indirect costs may not exceed 10 percent.

EOI Deadline: Oct. 31. Invited full proposals will be due Jan. 25, 2017 and award notification made by May 2017 with the earliest start date of June 2017.
