County of Applicant:

The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to East Carolina University for the East Carolina Diabetes & Obesity Institute (ECDOI). The funding will support two new post-doctoral fellows for two years. Support of these investigators is expected to generate several multi-million-dollar grants that will, in turn, generate at least 3-6 additional jobs for technicians, nurses, and other personnel over the next three years and create significant additional scientific discoveries that will lead to new drug development and creation of new businesses in eastern North Carolina.
