About Delaware INBRE

The Delaware IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) is a collaborative network of Delaware academic, health care and research institutions made up of six partner institutions: University of Delaware, Delaware State University, Christiana Care Health System, Delaware Technical Community College, Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children and Wesley College.

Its goal is to expand research activities across basic, translational and clinical areas throughout the First State while also increasing Delaware’s competitiveness for federal biomedical research funding. In doing so, Delaware INBRE supports impactful, state-of-the-art research that creates jobs, prepares tomorrow’s workforce and improves the health of Delawareans. This happens in three ways: by providing biomedical research opportunities for undergraduates; supporting early-career investigators on their quest to become independent researchers; and improving Delaware’s research infrastructure with a collaborative network of core facilities offering the latest research equipment.

Delaware INBRE is supported by a grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences Institutional Development Award [NIH-NIGMS: P20 GM103446] and the state of Delaware.

Delaware INBRE operates through five core activities:
