The objective of the Silvio O. Conte Digestive Diseases Research Core Centers (DDRCCs) is to bring together, on a cooperative basis, basic and clinical investigators to enhance the effectiveness of their research related to digestive and/or liver diseases and their complications. DDRCCs are meant to improve communication among investigators and to integrate, coordinate, and foster interdisciplinary research involving the etiology, treatment, and prevention of digestive and/or liver diseases. To accomplish this, the DDRCC supports a group of established investigators actively conducting programs of important, high-quality research that relates to a common theme in digestive diseases or liver diseases research. Thus, the purpose of a DDRCC is to provide the capability for accomplishments greater than those that would be possible by individual research project grant support alone. Applicants are encouraged to consult NIDDK staff concerning plans for the development of the DDRCC and the organization of the application.
