COBRE, an acronym for Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence, was designed by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to cultivate research expertise among junior faculty and strengthen the research infrastructure of states that do not receive as much NIH funding as some large states.
In 2002, the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences received a $10.4 million, five-year award from the NIH to establish a nationally recognized Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE I).
The grant was renewed in 2007 for another five-year period at $10.1 million (COBRE II).
In 2012, the grant was renewed for another five years at $5.1 million. This portion of the grant focuses on core facilities rather than projects (COBRE III).
UND's COBRE funding supports collaborative projects promoting research opportunities for biomedical investigators in North Dakota. These projects offer broad potential for understanding and treating pathophysiological and neurodegenerative diseases, and also provided funds to establish Imaging and Mass Spectrometry facilities.
