The IBR-COBRE is funded by the NIGMS to support the development of a center for biomedical research excellence in developmental and reproductive biology within the Institute for Biogenesis Research.
To further that goal and recognizing that NIH R01 and R21 applications that are multi-PI have a greater chance of being funded compared to single-investigator grants, the IBR-COBRE is offering Pilot Project Awards that will support the development of competitive applications for external funding in the IBR by developing collaborations between IBR faculty, and between IBR faculty and other researchers across the campus to broaden the scope of IBR research.
The purpose of this FOA is to provide support for principal investigators to accrue data for a subsequent, larger NIH grant application, R01 or R21. The proposals should clearly describe how this funding will facilitate the team’s specific plan to apply for additional funding.
