The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) invites applications for establishment of a Bariatric Surgery Clinical Research Consortium (BSCRC)to focuses on bariatric surgery and its role in the understanding and treatment of obesity and its complications. Bariatric surgery involves reducing the size of the gastric reservoir, with or without a degree of associated malabsorption, with a goal of inducing weight loss among patients with extreme obesity.(American Society for Bariatric Surgery, 2001) The objective of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to establish and maintain a Bariatric Surgery Clinical Research Consortium consisting of a group of between four and six interactive Clinical Centers (CCs) and a Data Coordinating Center (DCC). The goal of the BSCRC is to facilitate coordinated clinical, epidemiological, and behavioral research in the field of bariatric surgery, through the cooperative development of common clinical protocols and a bariatric surgery database to collect information from participating CCs. This is a one-time solicitation to support a Clinical Research Consortium for five years.
