Located in Reno, Nevada at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), this center is funded by a $10 million grant from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The center integrates the research activities of faculty in three different departments and colleges at UNR and significantly enhances UNR's research infrastructure and environment by establishing or expanding state-of-the-art scientific cores. The COBRE’s five research projects are a strong stimulus to integrate UNR’s research in cell biology, developmental biology, signaling and neuroscience and foster collaborations between basic scientists and clinicians.
