Biomedical Technology Resource Centers
The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) supports a large network of Biomedical Technology Resource Centers (BTRCs) through the P41 grant mechanism. These Centers create critical and unique technology and methods at the forefront of their respective fields and apply them to a broad range of basic, translational and clinical research. This occurs through a synergistic interaction of technical and biomedical expertise, both within the Centers and in intensive collaborations with other leading laboratories. Scientists at these Centers ensure that NIH-funded biomedical research projects may gain access to the newest and most advanced technologies, techniques, and methodologies. The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) has a similar program that supports BTRCs. Details about that program can be found at Biomedical Technology Research Resources (BTRR) - National Institute of General Medical Sciences. Applicants who are interested in submitting an application to the NIGMS program need to use NIGMS application procedures rather than those in this announcement.
