COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH GRANTS 

For details on how to apply, please see the Funding Opportunity Announcement

 OVERVIEW

The NIH Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Program broadens the geographic distribution of NIH funding for competitive biomedical and behavioral research by enhancing the research capabilities of institutions in eligible states.The IDeA Program aims to achieve this goal through 3 major initiatives: (1) the IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE), (2) the Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE), and (3) the IDeA Clinical and Translational Research Program (IDeA-CTR).

 The Oklahoma IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (OK-INBRE) is requesting applications for Collaborative Grants.A primary goal of the Collaborative Grant program is to foster and develop faculty research programs so faculty researchers may gain valuable experience in designing, conducting and reporting biomedical research, thus enhancing their ability to compete for extramural funding beyond the local level.The primary objective of the OK-INBRE Collaborative Grant program is to foster research interactions between faculty at the primarily undergraduate OK-INBRE institutions (listed above) and their counterparts at the research intensive institutions.The proposal must involve collaborative research with an investigator at one (or more) of the research intensive institutions.The proposed project must align with one of the biomedical research themes of the OK-INBRE program: Cancer, Developmental Biology or Infectious Diseases.
