Program Description

The Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) is designed to provide funding for research capacity building in states that have not participated fully in the research programs of the NIH. The guiding principles in organizing this Network for the development of biomedical sciences research in Rhode Island are to:

  1. Facilitate an increase in the number of junior investigators who would be better prepared to successfully compete for independent extramural research grant support from NIH and other funding agencies
  2. Increase the number of students being trained for careers in the biomedical sciences
  3. Provide access to instrumentation and bioinformatics core facilities for conducting cutting-edge research

Network Structure

The RI-INBRE network objective is to support and develop talented individuals, committed to research careers in Rhode Island, and to build the biomedical research capacity of Rhode Island institutions that have historically received little NIH funding. The research foci of the RI-INBRE program are cancer, neuroscience, and molecular toxicology.


Network Institutions

The Network institutions include the University of Rhode Island, Brown University, Bryant University, Providence College, Rhode Island College, Roger Williams University, and Salve Regina University. The Community College of Rhode Island serves an outreach institution for the Network.

Center for Molecular Toxicology

Mission The mission of the Center for Molecular Toxicology (CMT) is to foster a state-wide research and training network in toxicology and related biomedical disciplines in order to enhance research capacity, research competiveness, and workforce development in Rhode Island (RI). Purpose The CMT provides the multi-institutional Rhode Island Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Network of Biomedical […]
