Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE)

Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) is a grant program at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that supports thematic, multidisciplinary centers designed to augment and strengthen institutional biomedical research capacity. The Centers support interdisciplinary groups of investigators who bring complementary approaches to the study of a scientific problem.

COBRE centers strengthen the biomedical research capacity of institutions by expanding and developing the research capability of their biomedical faculty and enhancing research infrastructure, including the establishment of core facilities needed to carry out the objectives of a multidisciplinary, collaborative research program.

The centers are led by NIH-funded investigators with expertise central to the theme of the grant. The centers promote collaborative, interactive efforts among researchers with complementary backgrounds, skills and expertise. Researchers supported by COBRE centers are expected to compete independently for external peer-reviewed grant support.
