To enlarge the pool of pediatric endocrinologists conducting diabetes research, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) recently awarded research training and career development grants to seven medical centers with strong research programs in childhood diabetes.
The scarcity of pediatric endocrinologists, reflected in the many unfilled vacancies for these specialists in medical centers around the country, has impeded clinical research in pediatric diabetes. Specifically, a shortage of clinical investigators has hindered research at a time when the momentum of basic research discoveries has rapidly accelerated. Physician scientists are needed to speed the flow of new information from the bench to bedside.
