Funding Opportunities and Funded Research

SC INBRE offers two main funding programs:

  • Bioinformatics Pilot Project Program: The goal of the SC INBRE Bioinformatics Pilot Project Program is to stimulate interest in the application of genomics and bioinformatics methods by supporting research and student training throughout the SC INBRE and South Carolina Clinical and Translational Research Institute (SCTR) networks. Funded projects are expected to generate preliminary data for presentations, publications and grant proposals by faculty and their students. 
  • Developmental Research Project Program: DRP awards are offered on a competitive basis and support independent research and mentored career development of Target Faculty. All DRP proposals must focus on Biomedical Science and fit within at least one of the broad scientific focus areas of SC INBRE: Regenerative MedicineCell and Molecular BiologyNeuroscience; and Bioinformatics.

  • For national grant deadlines and details, see our calendar page.
