NIH grants $122 million in Institutional Development Awards
Date:5/5/2009

The National Center for Research Resources (NCRR), part of the National Institutes of Health, announced today it will provide up to an estimated $122 million over the next five years to fund Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) in seven IDeA-eligible states. By promoting the development, coordination and sharing of research resources and expertise, these awards expand research opportunities and increase the number of competitive investigators in 23 eligible states and Puerto Rico. The INBRE is a component of the IDeA program, which is designed to improve the competitiveness of investigators in states that historically have not received significant levels of NIH research funding.

The lead institutions for statewide networks receiving this second phase of five-year funding are the New Mexico State University, University of Alaska Fairbanks, University of Delaware, University of Idaho, University of Kansas Medical Center, University of Nebraska Medical Center and University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. INBRE grants aim to enhance biomedical research capacity, expand and strengthen the research capabilities of biomedical faculty, and provide access to biomedical resources for promising undergraduate students throughout the eligible states.

"IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence create opportunities for students in all regions of the country to pursue careers in biomedical research that range from bench science to community engagement," said NCRR Director Barbara M. Alving, M.D.

Through the IDeA program, NCRR supports institutions and communities in 23 states and Puerto Rico with grants that fund multiple areas of biomedical research and reach out to diverse populations. INBRE funding enables academic health centers to:

  • build and strengthen the lead and partner institutions' biomedical research expertise and infrastructure;
  • support faculty, p
