The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) funded 26 Institutional Development Award (IDeA) grants in fiscal year 2016. The grants, which are expected to total approximately $301.3 million over the next five years, were issued to 24 institutions in 17 states across the nation.
Established in 1993, 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. The program also enhances the ability of investigators to compete successfully for additional research funding and serves unique populations, such as rural and medically underserved communities.
The IDeA program includes:
