The NIBR Global Scholars Program (NGSP) is a competitive program designed for innovators from invited institutions to gain funding for breakthrough science not covered by traditional grant support. Through this program, NIBR will support projects focused on novel science with the objective of being translated to drug discovery and/or clinical research.
Access to inter-disciplinary expertise
Academic scholars have access to disease area drug-hunting and translational research expertise. Each selected scholar will join forces with other entrepreneurially motivated NIBR scientists to challenge the status quo and take bold risks for potential big rewards, and will have an opportunity to advance research into early development stages.
Resources for breakthrough science
Selected research proposals, not funded by traditional grant support, will receive up to USD 1M over three years.
A dedicated alliance manager will ensure a productive collaboration environment between NIBR and the academic institution by handling all operational facets of the NGSP.
Over 30 premier institutions around the world are participating in 2020.
