Human Islet Distribution Coordinating Center (UC4): This FOA invites applications for continuation of a coordinating center for the Integrated Islet Distribution Program (IIDP). The IIDP facilitates the distribution of human cadaveric islets for biomedical research. The IIDP coordinating center (IIDP-CC) will subcontract with qualified islet isolation facilities to prepare and distribute human islets, and will manage an application process to establish investigator eligibility to receive islets. The IIDP-CC will maintain a roster of researchers approved to receive islets, implement a notification system informing investigators of islet availability, manage a cost recovery system through fees collected from islet recipients, and oversee quality control processes to monitor and improve the quality of islets distributed across the program. Human islets are an essential resource for diabetes research, both to advance our understanding of human islet cell biology and to develop therapies for the treatment of diabetes. The IIDP coordinating center provides critical services to the research community by enhancing access to human islets and by fostering improved standardization and quality of this important research resource.
