The NIH Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) awards provide funds for research infrastructure and pilot grants for investigators.
The COBRE award to the University of Nebraska Omaha targets the investigation of the mechanisms of human movement variability in order to treat and prevent motor related disorders. Such investigation is multidisciplinary in nature encompassing biological and behavioral sciences, mathematics, engineering, computer science, virtual reality, physics, biotechnology, and several others.
The goal of the Pilot Project mechanism is to enhance the development of the research for a NIH New Investigator by providing support for research, the instrumentation necessary for cutting-edge biomedical research, supplies, and other associated expenses. The result from the development of this research infrastructure will be to provide opportunities for collaboration and to become involved in the biomedical research projects supported by the Center. The COBRE pilot research projects allow an investigator to develop more substantial independent external support from the NIH.
Applications must be completed in NuRamp under the “COBRE Pilot Project Mechanism 2020” application by 5 P.M. CST on March 15, 2020.
For scientific inquiries and questions regarding the development of the application please contact Dr. Nick Stergiou at firstname.lastname@example.org or schedule a meeting through Angela Collins at 402.554.4486 or at email@example.com.
