NIH: Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) (P20) PAR-14-035
The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) invites applications for Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) from investigators at biomedical research institutions that award doctoral degrees in the health sciences or sciences related to health or at independent biomedical research institutes within Institutional Development Award (IDeA) eligible states. The objective of the COBRE initiative is to strengthen an institution's biomedical research infrastructure through the establishment of a thematic multi-disciplinary center and to enhance the ability of investigators to compete independently for complementary National Institutes of Health (NIH) individual research grant or other external peer-reviewed support. COBRE awards are supported through the IDeA Program, which aims to foster health-related research by increasing the competitiveness of investigators at institutions located in states with historically low aggregate success rates for grant awards from the NIH.
USC may only submit one application in response to this program announcement. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White (email@example.com) by December 18, 2015. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.
NIH indicates that a letter of intent is due December 28, 2015 and a full proposal is due by January 28, 2016. For more information: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-14-035.html
