Limited Submission Program (LSP): This funding opportunity and the Limited Submission Program (LSP) is open to all Texas A&M University faculty and principal investigators who meet the eligibility requirements. Texas A&M and The Texas A&M University System agencies jointly administer this process to select the proposal(s) that will be submitted to the sponsor in response to this solicitation.

 

Institutional Eligibility:  The sponsoring institution must assure support for the proposed program. Appropriate institutional commitment to the program includes the provision of adequate staff, facilities, and educational resources that can contribute to the planned program.

 

PI Eligibility:  The PD/PI should be an established investigator in biomedical engineering or a related field, and should possess relevant experience required to coordinate, supervise, and direct the proposed design course/program.

 

The PD(s)/PI(s) must be an established biomedical or behavioral research scientist, who has an active research laboratory, peer-reviewed funding (NIH, NSF or other Federal or non-Federal investigator-initiated support) that is relevant to the scientific theme of the proposed COBRE and administrative leadership to effectively carry out the objectives of the COBRE program and to meet its goals.

 

The PD(s)/PI(s) of a previous COBRE center that completed the 3 consecutive phases may not lead a new COBRE phase 1 application without compelling justification. . PD(s)/PI(s) may not simultaneously lead two or more IDeA program awards.

 

If the PD/PI is not in place at the institution at the time of review, that individual must be a full-time faculty member at the time of award.  The application must be written by that proposed PD/PI.  

 

The proposal will be prepared and submitted by Sponsored Research Services (SRS).

 

Proposal Limit: 1

 

Summary:  The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) invites applications for Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) from investigators at biomedical research institutions that award doctoral degrees in the health sciences or sciences related to health or at independent biomedical research institutes with ongoing biomedical research programs funded by the NIH or other federal agencies within Institutional Development Award (IDeA) eligible states. The objectives of the COBRE initiative is to strengthen an institution's biomedical research infrastructure through the establishment of a thematic multi-disciplinary center and to enhance the ability of investigators to compete independently for complementary National Institutes of Health (NIH) individual research grants or other external peer-reviewed support. COBRE awards are supported through the IDeA Program, which aims to foster health-related research by increasing the competitiveness of investigators at institutions located in states with historically low aggregate success rates for grant awards from the NIH.
