Funds are available to fund 4 to 8 P&F grants from the Pennington COBRE. Clinical/translational or basic science proposals may request budgets from $25,000 to $75,000, although it should be noted that budget requests near the upper limit are most likely to be approved for clinical projects. The major objective of this program is to provide research support to test innovative hypotheses regarding metabolic diseases and other pilot studies related to the COBRE and Clinical Science Faculty at PBRC, as well as their collaborators and PIs at sister institutions within the LSU system. The COBRE will give its highest priority to research related to obesity and diabetes, including excellent projects that relate to this global theme through nutritional interventions or preventive medicine approaches.
