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

ecially at a time when financial resources are scarce and competition nationally is fierce, said Congressman Jim Langevin. The research undertaken with this funding has the potential to help many Rhode Islanders and others across the nation who live with some of lifes most painful and debilitating joint diseases. I look forward to learning more about this COBREs development and growth in the coming years.

This grant will improve lives, reaffirm the citys position as an emerging biotech center and strengthen our local economy, said Providence Mayor David N. Cicilline. This is a win for everyone, from the world-class researchers at Brown University and Rhode Island Hospital to the community at large.

The COBRE program supports multidisciplinary centers, each concentrating on one general area of research. COBREs are a component of the Institutional Development Award (IDeA) program, which aims to increase the research capability of states with historically low success rates of obtaining NIH grants.

Each COBRE includes a principal investigator with established credentials relevant to the centers research theme; three to five individual research projects that share that theme and are supervised by a single junior investigator; and a development and mentoring plan that will prepare these investigators to secure competitive federal research funding.

The NIH funding will provide core research facilities and essential mentoring that will enable clinicians to work side-by-side with basic research scientists, junior investigators with senior investigators, and biologists with bioengineers, said NCRR Deputy Director Louise Ramm, Ph.D. This approach exemplifies translational research at its best and will spur discovery to more quickly bring cures and treatments to patients who need them.

Rhode Island Hospital received its first COBRE grant in 2002. That award led to the establishment of the states first-ever Center for Cancer Resear
