Early Career Development

The purpose of the Early Career Development Program is to sustain highly promising early career investigators in Rhode Island who are productive, exemplify a strong commitment to research excellence, and show interest in establishing an externally funded biomedical research program. Investigators in this program will have research interests in one of the scientific thematic areas of RI-INBRE.  These investigators will be expected to set up laboratory facilities, purchase required equipment, recruit students and postdoctoral fellows, generate high quality preliminary data, initiate scientific collaborations, and publish a minimum of one research manuscript by the end of their second year of support. They must be mentored by a senior investigator who possesses research expertise in the field and a successful track record of securing research grants from NIH or other federal agencies. Faculty form the primarily undergraduate institutions (PUI) participating in this program are expected to develop productive, sustainable student training programs while investigators at the University of Rhode Island and Brown University are expected to gain independence by obtaining funded external grants such as NIH R01, R03, R15, and R21 awards. Toward the end of their second year, PUI investigators may apply for continued funding either under the Collaborative, Proposal Development, or SURF Training research support mechanisms. University of Rhode Ilalnd and Brown University investigators that successfully obtain external funding graduate from the program and continue to participate by serving as mentors for new investigators and students.
