Center of Biomedical Research Excellence – Natural Products Neuroscience (COBRE-NPN) Voucher Program

Apply for COBRE Voucher Program


The purpose of the voucher program is to allow non-COBRE supported University of Mississippi investigators to generate preliminary data for subsequent NIH proposal submissions using the established Natural Products Neuroscience core facilities. The voucher program will provide funds only to support utilization of the services provided by the COBRE-NPN Cores. Application instructions are provided below. Voucher requests may not exceed $5,000/year. Applicants should consult with the appropriate Core Directors to ascertain both feasibility of proposed services and projected costs. 

Voucher proposals should be submitted to the COBRE Pilot Project Program Director. The COBRE-NPN Steering Committee (comprising of the Internal Advisory Committee members and Core and Program Directors) will review the applications, using NIH grant guidelines and assign a score that is based on the scientific merit and mission of the Center, and make a decision with respect to funding. Funding will be allocated based on recommendations from the committee and availability of funds in the Administrative Core.

For additional information, please contact Dr. Soumyajit Majumdar or Dr. Kristie Willett, or call 662-915-7828.
