The Developmental Research Project Program (DRPP) provides a range of
programs to help develop competitive biomedical research faculty at the
partner and affiliated institutions of the Arkansas INBRE. Within
the Arkansas INBRE network, a critical mass of scientists, from students
to senior investigators, focus on the research theme of Cellular Signaling, Growth, and Differentiation.
Discoveries in this broad area of study further the development of new therapeutic approaches to human disease and understanding of human disease mechanisms.
To increase the biomedical research infrastructure and capacity in
Arkansas, the AR INBRE offers competitive funding opportunities to Predominately
Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs) faculty as a Faculty Mentored research
Program. These opportunities along with submission dates and
requirements are described as DRPP Funding
Additional opportunities for faculty to invite speakers for biomedical
research seminars is
explained on the
Research Seminar Funds web page. Information on how to apply for Technical
Training Opportunities can be found at Mini-Sabbatical Funds.
Faculty at the PUIs across the state are eligible to
apply for these funds. These PUIs are Arkansas State University (AState),
Arkansas Tech University (ATU), Central Baptist College (CBC), Harding University, Hendrix College, Lyon College, Ouachita Baptist University (OBU),
Philander Smith College (PSC), Southern Arkansas University (SAU),
the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith (UAFS), the University of
Arkansas at Monticello (UAM), University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff
(UAPB), and University of Central Arkansas (UCA).
Faculty and students at the PUIs have access to the physical infrastructure and technical expertise of the three lead academic institutions—University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS), University of Arkansas, Fayetteville (UAF); and University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR).
