Centralized Research Instrumentation Core (CRIC)

The goal of CRIC is to play a leadership role in disseminating information about the Delaware INBRE instrumentation core resources, and in developing a community of educated core facility users that works closely and collaboratively with core professionals. Fifteen technology centers/cores are affiliated with Delaware INBRE and participate in activities and programs enhancing access to state of the art technologies for biomedical research. Contact the core facility manager for a tour of the facility and overview of services.

Delaware INBRE Core Center Access Award Program:

CRIC promotes clinical and translational research by facilitating instrumentation access via its Core Center Access Award (CCAA).

The program aims to assist biomedical research investigators in conducting small pilot studies, obtaining preliminary data for grant application, testing proof of concept, or providing additional data for publication. Investigators within Delaware INBRE institutions are invited to apply for a CCAA in order to access INBRE cores services. An investigator can only receive one CCAA or Multi-CCAA per funding cycle (May 1st start date). Single awarded CCAA’s may not exceed $4,000 per core. In cases of collaborative projects, a combination of two INBRE cores may be considered for a Multi Core Access Award (mCAAA). Prior to submitting an application, investigators must discuss projects with the core instrumentation center director.

Requests should be submitted to the Delaware INBRE office at info@de-inbre.org. Applications will be reviewed by the Delaware INBRE Core leaders. Awardee and the appropriate core director will be notified via email of award decision.

Delaware INBRE Instrumentation Core Development Award:

The Delaware INBRE Instrumentation Core Development Award is supported by the University of Delaware INBRE Office in order to enable staff from the affiliated INBRE cores to attend a workshop, offsite training, or conference. This award is aimed at core facility directors and research scientists that would like to develop new skills.

The Delaware INBRE Office is providing matching-funds for this purpose.  The training or development event must take place on or before April 15, 2020 and all receipts must be fully paid, processed, and allocated prior to April 30, 2020.  Please complete the Development Award form and submit your request to the Delaware INBRE office at info@de-inbre.org. Development Award applications will be reviewed by the Delaware INBRE Core leaders. Awardee and the appropriate core director will be notified via email of award decision.
