Cardiovascular-Metabolic Fellowship Awards
The American Diabetes Association (ADA) Cardiovascular-Metabolic Fellowship Awards are designed to support basic, clinical or translational research focused on cardiovascular disease in the context of diabetes.

The ADA Cardiovascular-Metabolic Fellowship Awards applications are intended to focus on the following areas of investigation:
- Mechanistic studies to examine the pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease in the context of diabetes
- Clinical investigations aimed at defining the optimal therapeutic approaches for addressing cardiovascular risk factors in people with diabetes
- Studies examining the effect of treatment approaches on the progression of cardiovascular disease in people with diabetes
- Strategies for improved care delivery for patients with diabetes and CVD, including the development of improved clinical decision support tools
