AnnouncementOctober 25, 2013
The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), part of the National Institutes of Health, has made 30 Institutional Development Awards (IDeA) to scientists in 18 states and Puerto Rico. These grants are expected to total approximately $330.6 million over the next 5 years.
Comprised of two main components, Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) and Institutional Development Award Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE), the IDeA program builds research capacities in states that historically have had low levels of NIH funding by supporting basic, clinical and translational research; faculty development; and infrastructure improvements.
This year, NIGMS issued grants to support 25 COBREs and two INBREs. COBRE awards are thematic, multidisciplinary research centers that develop faculty and institutional research capabilities. INBRE awards enhance research capacity, strengthen the research capabilities of faculty and provide students with access to biomedical resources.
In addition, the Institute funded three awards as part of its newly developed Institutional Development Award Program Infrastructure for Clinical and Translational Research (IDeA-CTR) initiative, which develops infrastructure and other resources required to conduct clinical and translational research in IDeA-eligible states.
