SC INBRE Developmental Research Project Program

The South Carolina IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (SC INBRE) offers a Developmental Research Project Program (DRP) designed to promote the career development of SC INBRE Target Faculty.

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.

Awards and competitive renewals are made to Faculty at Predominantly Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs) and to faculty from the three Comprehensive Research Institutions: USC, MUSC and Clemson University. 

SC INBRE Target Faculty will utilize SC INBRE support to establish their independent research programs and, in the process, provide research training to students and/or postdoctoral fellows in the Biomedical Sciences.
