Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) Phase 2 Funding Opportunity and Upcoming Webinar


UPDATE: The slides [PDF] and video for this webinar are now available.

I’m pleased to announce that the Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) Phase 2 funding opportunity announcement (FOA) (PAR-22-163) has been reissued. The COBRE program supports the establishment and development of innovative biomedical and behavioral research centers at Institutional Development Award (IDeA)-eligible institutions. The goal of this FOA is to strengthen successful Phase 1 centers through further research infrastructure improvements and continued development of investigators with shared scientific interests who can compete effectively for independent research funding.

Application receipt date: September 27, 2022
Earliest start date: July 2023

We strongly encourage all Phase 1 COBRE awardees and institutional officials to attend our upcoming webinar:

Thursday, May 12, 3:00-4:30 p.m. ET
