Montana INBRE is requesting letters of intent in advance of its annual Faculty Research and Student-Focused Faculty Research RFPs. Letters of intent are required for any proposal involving collaborations between multiple institutions and/or significant community engagement aspects. For all other project types, LOIs are highly encouraged, but not necessarily required prior to submitting a proposal for Montana INBRE funding. Potential funding areas include basic biomedical science, environmental health, public health, infectious diseases, rural and/or Native American health disparities, and food security/sovereignty. Montana INBRE strives to develop a diversified research portfolio that spans bench science, social science, and community engagement spheres and seeks to include all academic institutions across the Montana INBRE network.
