HHS: Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) (P20 Clinical Trial Optional)PAR-18-266
The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) invites applications for Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE)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 grants 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.

Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White (firstname.lastname@example.org) by November 2, 2018. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.
