OK-INBRE Mini Grants
For details on how to apply, see the Funding Opportunity Announcement
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 Mini Grants.A primary goal of the Mini 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 proposed project must align with one of the biomedical research themes of the OK-INBRE program: Cancer, Developmental Biology or Infectious Diseases.
