The Arkansas IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (Arkansas INBRE) is funded by a grant from the
National Institute of General Medical Sciences under the
Development Award (IDeA) Program of the
National Institutes of Health (NIH). The IDeA program was established for the purpose of broadening the geographic distribution of NIH funding for biomedical and behavioral research. Currently
NIGMS supports INBRE programs in 23 states and Puerto Rico.
The Arkansas INBRE builds on the successful Arkansas Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network (BRIN) program that was established in 2001 under a grant from
the NIH. The Arkansas BRIN established a statewide network that links Arkansas institutions of higher education to establish a statewide infrastructure in support of a growing effort to build a biomedical research capacity in Arkansas.
