The objectives of COBRE funding are to augment and strengthen an institution's biomedical research capacity and to develop a multidisciplinary research center with a thematic science focus. COBRE grants also enable an institution to develop resources needed to conduct state-of-the-art biomedical research, with the ultimate goal of preparing investigators to compete successfully for additional NIH research grants.
