URI receives $18 million grant to strengthen biomedical research capacity in Rhode Island
Date:5/20/2009

icology, cell biology and behavioral science.

"The first two thematic areas were chosen because a majority of the projects supported by the grant fall in these scientific disciplines," said Bongsup Cho, URI professor of biomedical sciences who will assist Shaikh in coordinating the research activities. "The behavioral science focus was added to allow an even greater number of faculty and students from the primarily undergraduate institutions to participate in the program."

The grant will be administered through URI's Center for Molecular Toxicology.

In addition to providing funds for acquiring state-of-the-art equipment and bioinformatics resources for research in these disciplines, the grant will also fund the recruitment and training of undergraduate and graduate students for careers in the biomedical and biotechnology fields, and continue faculty development and mentoring opportunities. During the past eight years, the program has been instrumental in the hiring of new faculty at all participating institutions, thus expanding the biomedical research and training base of the state.

The University's Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program, launched as part of the 2001 grant, will also be expanded to provide biomedical and behavioral research training to about 65 undergraduate students who are either enrolled at Rhode Island colleges and universities or are residents of the state.

According to Shaikh, the grant will also allow for an increase in the number of graduate students entering URI, Brown and Rhode Island College. It will also fund a new outreach program that will provide opportunities for high school teachers and students to participate in faculty research during the summer.

"These grants have accelerated research in the biomedical arena within Rhode Island," said URI College of Pharmacy Dean Ron Jordan. "This sector of our economy will bear more fruit in the next several years as
