Recently funded NIDDK R25 grant

A team of investigators from CWRU (Rossana Occhipinti, PhD and Walter Boron, MD, PhD), UCSD (Maryann Martone, PhD and Jeffrey Grethe, PhD) and University of Auckland (Peter Hunter, PhD, Bernard deBono, MD, PhD, and David Nickerson, PhD) has been recently awarded a five-year Research Education Grant (R25) from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). The grant, “FAIR DOs: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable Development of Open Simulations”, will support the development of a research education program in computational modeling of the neural regulation of transport processes by digestive and renal epithelia, as we leverage teaching structures at CWRU as well as Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions (SPARC)-generated resources.

The ultimate goal of the program is to train the next generation of researchers and clinicians in the use and development of FAIR computational models, thereby promoting a spirit of openness and collegiality within the NIDDK-funded research community.
