Continuous Glucose Telemetry Award

Continuous Glucose Telemetry (CGT) is changing the way scientists perform research and develop therapies by offering a novel solution to obtain second-by-second  blood glucose, temperature, and activity measurements in laboratory rodents.

The Continuous Glucose Telemetry Award is sponsored by Data Sciences International (DSI) to support researchers considering the use of CGT in their preclinical mice and rat studies.

Successful applicants will document the use of CGT in their application and whether or not it provided scientific, animal welfare, or economic advantages over intermittent sampling. When possible, direct comparisons are highly desired.

The CGT Award includes a 6-month loan of an 8-animal telemetry system with 8 glucose telemetry implants (HD-XG); approximate value $40,000.

In exchange for the loan and use of equipment and supplies, the award recipient must publicly present the findings of their study.  This can be accomplished by giving an oral or poster presentation at a scientific meeting or publishing a manuscript in a peer-reviewed journal.  The presentation arrangements must be discussed and approved by DSI.

Applications are currently being reviewed as the deadline has passed.

Application deadline: May 1, 2018

Applicants must:

  1. Provide a description of their current and pending research (if applicable), highlighting its relevance to the intent of the award (up to 3 pages).
  2. Provide information about how the equipment and supplies will be used in their research study (up to 1 page).
  3. Provide a Biosketch or CV (up to 4 pages).
