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

ostdoctoral fellows, and graduate students through career development and training in research at the participating institutions;
  • provide research opportunities for undergraduate students and serve as a pipeline for undergraduate students to continue in health research careers within IDeA states;
  • provide outreach activities to students at undergraduate institutions, community colleges and tribal colleges participating in the state's network; and
  • enhance science and technology knowledge of the state's workforce.

    INBRE has been a catalyst for transformations in research competitiveness. The Idaho and Delaware networks are two examples of where these changes are already being realized. Over the past five years, the Idaho INBRE program has developed an unprecedented network of research and educational collaborations which has led to a doubling in the number of Idaho undergraduates pursing science and health-related careers. In Delaware, catalyzed by INBRE grants, the state has seen its NIH funding nearly double between 2000 and 2007, showcasing the improvement in the competitiveness of Delaware investigators.
