9:45 a.m., March 28, 2013--The Delaware Rehabilitation Institute at the University of Delaware has issued a request for proposals for pilot grants through its National Institutes of Health Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) award, which focuses on osteoarthritis prevention and treatment. 

The COBRE pilot grants are intended to fund research for a one-year period to allow research teams to develop more substantial independent external support from the National Institutes of Health. Meritorious projects may be renewed for a second year.

About the COBRE program

The University of Delaware has received $5.4 million over five years from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to support an Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE). The IDeA program builds research capacities in states that historically have had low levels of NIH funding by supporting basic, clinical and translational research; faculty development; and infrastructure improvements.
