Led by the Geisel School of Medicine and the University of New Hampshire, the New Hampshire IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (NH-INBRE)—a statewide collaborative partnership of two- and four-year colleges—has received a five-year, $18.1 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to continue a successful program aimed at expanding biomedical research capacity and training in New Hampshire.

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 improvement. This is NH-INBRE's second NIH IDeA grant.

The initial NIH grant to NH-INBRE supported nearly 600 New Hampshire college students who participated in 25 research projects funded at partner schools, which include Colby-Sawyer College, Franklin Pierce University, Keene State College, New England College, Plymouth State University, Saint Anselm College, and the Community College System of New Hampshire.

NH-INBRE also identifies and funds outstanding biomedical researchers among faculty members of partner institutions so they can lead research programs that contribute to biomedical research, and in turn acquaint their students with top-level research, building important skills needed to succeed in New Hampshire's growing biotechnology sector.
