Towards the end of each calendar year, we have an annual call for project proposals. Any Principal Investigator based at the University of Oxford with an interest in diabetes and metabolism can submit a project for consideration. Please contact Dr Serena Briant if you have any questions about submitting a project. The Joint Steering Committee will then select the best projects.
