In 2005, Furman shared an award with seven South Carolina institutions with an overarching goal aimed at increasing biomedical research competitiveness in our state. Between May 2005 and April 2010, Furman received approximately $2M in funding through NIH-INBRE with the primary focus on 6 target faculty across three disciplines (Biology, Psychology and Chemistry). The funds have been distributed across various programs to promote research and engaged learning.
Through a competitive renewal process, Furman University will again receive funding from the National Institutes of Health within the IDeA Network for Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) program. This NIH-INBRE award (INBRE 3; 2015-2020) will provide a total of 5 (five) NIH INBRE Faculty Fellow awards each summer (2016-2020). Apply here.
INBRE 3 (2015-2020) introduced the Developmental Research Project (DRP) program that allows individual faculty at SC INBRE network institutions to submit competitive proposals for biomedically-focused research. Learn about recent research.
Managed from Furman University, the SC INBRE RET will enable teachers to engage in a 6-week immersion research experience at an institution in their local area. Read more about the program.
Furman has striven to provide research opportunities to students in order to increase biomedical research competitiveness in our state and to promote engaged learning. Learn more about our research.
