dkNET webinar: Introduction of dkNET 3.0
Abstract Submission Deadline: EMBO Workshop — Lipid function in health and disease
The program will combine biochemical, biophysical and cell biological approaches to lipid function and metabolism and move from basic science to cover lipids in health and disease. By trying to creatively present the attractiveness and breadth of the field, this EMBO Workshop will confront the speakers and the participants with the exciting challenges ahead. Abstract submission deadline: May 15, 2019.

Gordon Research Conference Application Deadline: Understanding Cell Behavior and Environmental Influences in Pancreatic Diseases
dkNET Webinar: Rigor and Reproducibility Support at dkNET 3.0
NIDDK Workshop Registration Deadline: The Physiology of the Weight Reduced State
The overarching goal of this workshop is to explore the mechanisms and integrative physiology of adaptations in appetite, energy expenditure, and thermogenesis (metabolic adaptation) that occur in the weight reduced state and may oppose weight loss maintenance. The workshop will include: (1)Clinical experience with weight reduction and weight loss maintenance versus regain across interventions (2)Factors opposing weight loss maintenance (3)Factors affecting energy intake in the weight reduced state, including neural and endocrine regulation and the integration of homeostatic and hedonic pathways along with microbiome links (4)Metabolic adaptation/adaptive thermogenesis and tissue-specific roles and mechanisms(5)Strategies for understanding the physiology of the weight reduced state and improving weight loss maintenance (6)Factors potentially responsible for physiological variability in weight maintenance versus regain.

NIDDK Funding Opportunity Letter of Intent Due Date: Limited Competition: Follow-up on Subjects\, Integrative Data Analysis and Measurement of Viral Antibodies in The Environmental Determinants of Diabetes in The Young Study (TEDDY) (U01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites one application from the Program Director/Principal Investigator (PD/PI) of the current Data Coordinating Center (DCC) for The Environmental Determinants of Diabetes in the Young (TEDDY) study, an ongoing epidemiological study. This DCC has been involved in study design and data and bio sample acquisition and management since the inception of the TEDDY Consortium. This FOA provides support for the TEDDY DCC to continue to follow TEDDY children and allows funding for collaborators to conduct studies on integration of various "omics" data and the measurement and analysis of viral antibodies using samples from TEDDY subjects.

NIDDK Funding Opportunity Letter of Intend Due Date: Diabetes Research Centers (P30 Clinical Trial Optional)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for Diabetes Research Centers that are designed to support and enhance the national research effort in diabetes, its complications, and related endocrine and metabolic diseases. Diabetes Research Centers support two primary research-related activities: Research Core services and a Pilot and Feasibility (P and F) program. All activities pursued by Diabetes Research Centers are designed to enhance the efficiency, productivity, effectiveness, and multidisciplinary nature of research in Diabetes Research Center topic areas. The NIDDK Diabetes Research Centers program in 2018 consists of 16 Centers each located at outstanding research institutions with documented programs of excellence in diabetes-related research. General information about the NIDDK Diabetes Research Centers program may be found at www.diabetescenters.org.
