New IDeAs, New Discoveries

The Northeast Regional Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Conference brings together individuals
representing IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE),
Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE), & IDeA Clinical and Translational Research (CTR)
from Delaware, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, & Vermont.

The northeast regional IDeA programs build research capacity by strengthening their institution’s ability to support biomedical research, enhancing the competitiveness of investigators in securing research funding, and enabling clinical and translational research that addresses the needs of medically underserved communities. These northeast IDeA states have 31 COBRE, 5 INBRE, and 3 CTR programs with 86 associated research cores. We invite you to visit these program websites on the link below to explore the rich diversity of research projects and associated core resources supporting new ideas and new discoveries in the northeast!
