NIDDK Urinary Stone Disease Research Network

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) invites collaborative cooperative agreement applications to establish a multi-center, multi-disciplinary group of investigators to be known as the Urinary Stone Disease Research Network (USDRN). The USDRN will a) design and conduct a randomized clinical trial to investigate the impact of increased fluid intake and increased urine output on the rate of recurrence of urinary stones in adults and children, b) conduct clinical research to understand and mitigate ureteral stent-related pain and symptoms, and c) provide data and collect biological samples from the studies to create a resource for future researchers. There are two funding opportunities available.

Clinical Centers (U01) – This funding opportunity (RFA-DK-15-004) will support USDRN Clinical Centers. The application deadline is November 18, 2015. Please contact with any questions.

Scientific Data Research Center (U01) – This funding opportunity (RFA-DK-15-005) will support the USDRN Scientific Data Research Center. The application deadline is November 18, 2015. Please contact with any questions.
