The Rhode Island IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (RI-INBRE) program is a statewide network designed to build the biomedical research capacity of Rhode Island institutions, by supporting and developing talented individuals committed to research careers in Rhode Island. The research themes of the RI-INBRE program are: cancer, environmental health sciences, and neuroscience.
The Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) is designed to provide funding for building research capacity in selected states. The guiding principles in organizing this Network for the development of biomedical sciences research in Rhode Island are to:
- Facilitate and increase the number of junior investigators and to prepare them to successfully compete for independent extramural funding from the NIH and other funding agencies
- Increase the number of students being trained for careers in the biomedical sciences
- Provide access to instrumentation and bioinformatics core facilities for conducting cutting-edge research
