The National Institutes of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases
(NIDDK), the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and the
National Institute on Aging (NIA) invite investigator-initiated Research
Projects (R01 and R21) to investigate the life cycle of adipocytes and other
cell types present in various fat depots, such as macrophages, neurons, and
endothelial cells. The goal of this initiative is to increase our
understanding of the interactions among the cell populations in order to
identify biomarkers of changes in cellular physiology and metabolism brought
on by the obese state, which are truly associated with the development of co-
morbidities such as diabetes, atherosclerosis, and hypertension. The long
term goal of this initiative is to identify markers of obesity associated
with disease risk that could yield new targets for therapeutics to disrupt
this link.
