Advancing Research Collaborations



The Diabetes & Obesity Research Priority Area and Barnstable Brown Diabetes Center invite you to the second annual Advancing Research Collaborations (ARC) event for faculty and senior scientists. 

The goal of ARC is to brainstorm new ideas for pilot projects or equipment ($5,000 - $50,000) that would benefit from Research Priority Area and Barnstable Brown Diabetes Center funds, with an eye looking ahead to future collaborative grant applications. New collaborations, cross college collaboration and attendees at the ARC event will be prioritized in funding decisions.
