The Developmental Research Program (DRP) and Pilot Grant (PG) Program will contribute to biomedical science in Nevada through research leading to publications and extramural funding. DRPs are primarily career development awards intended to lead to an independent researcher directing a sustained research enterprise. In order to achieve this, the DRP program requires a commitment of 6 person months effort to research and career development. PGs are smaller research awards available to fund a range of activities including preliminary studies for a grant proposal, the development of bioinformatics resources, authentic research experiences for undergraduate students, or research-based curriculum reform.
Developmental Research Projects
The DRP Program is a mentored career development program intended to advance the careers of Nevada researchers in biomedical sciences. The program provides research funding and a mentored pathway of milestones leading to publication submission of an NIH R-type grant proposal or equivalent proposal (NSF, American Heart Association, etc.). The project duration is 2 years, with the second year of funding contingent on the completion of all year 1 milestones. Direct costs up to $75,000 per year may be requested. For detailed information and application information, please see the DRP Funding Announcement.
The Pilot Grant (PG) Program is a funding mechanism to engage faculty members and staff at NV INBRE Partner Institutions in research that will address biomedical sciences, increase the culture of research at these institutions, and provide research opportunities for undergraduate students. The duration of the project is up to 1 year and direct costs up to $10,000 may be requested. For detailed information and application information, please see the PG Funding Announcement.
