Faculty Opportunities

NM-INBRE is a competitive career and science development program that emphasizes the maturation of research projects into comprehensive research programs. Eligible faculty have the opportunity to compete for research project funding through NM-INBRE’s Developmental Research Project Program (DRPP) to enhance their scientific advancement, professional growth, student mentoring, and collaborations. NM-INBRE focuses on faculty progress toward establishing independent research programs in order to sustain research activities beyond the INBRE award. The NM-INBRE DRPP therefore expects faculty investigators to take active steps toward securing external funding, and encourages investigators to submit proposals to the NIH and other federal agencies.

The New Mexico IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (NM-INBRE) is funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) under the Funding Opportunity Announcement PAR-23-100 to strengthen the biomedical research capacity in IDeA eligible states. The NM-INBRE program intends to provide funding for developmental research projects, pending the availability of continued funding from the NIH.
