Rhode Island Hospital lands $11.1M grant from National Institutes of Health
Date:10/29/2007

The National Center for Research Resources, part of the National Institutes of Health, has awarded Rhode Island Hospital an $11.1 million grant to study the prevention and treatment of skeletal joint diseases. The 5-year grant will establish the Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) for Skeletal Health and Repair at Rhode Island Hospital and create a multidisciplinary team of scientists with its academic partner, The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

The grant is one of the largest in the hospitals history and comes at a time of intense competition for federal funding for biomedical research. Basic science findings from the COBRE center may lead to improved preventive strategies or treatments for joint diseases such as osteoarthritis, which affects an estimated 21 million Americans and is one of the countrys most common chronic illnesses.

In this highly competitive research environment, we are honored that the NIH has again recognized Rhode Island Hospital as an institution with the talent, expertise and innovative spirit to conduct world-class, pioneering research in the area of orthopedics, said George Vecchione, interim president and CEO, Rhode Island Hospital.

This is the NIHs sixth COBRE grant to Rhode Island-based institutions, including the second at Rhode Island Hospital. These awards designed to strengthen institutional biomedical research capability and enhance research infrastructure have collectively brought in more than $60 million in federal research funding to the state since 2000.

The creation of a multidisciplinary research center will enable investigators from across different disciplines including those with clinical, biological and engineering expertise to collaborate on cutting-edge research with the common goal of helping the millions of Americans who suffer from joint diseases or injury, said Michael Ehrlich, MD, surgeon-in-chief of orthopedics at Rhode Island Hospital
