To accomplish the mission of the HBC in terms of enhancing multidisciplinary and inter-disciplinary research in the biomedical sciences, the Center has developed a variety of programs funded through indirect cost returns to the HBC and endowed funds donated to the HBC for the support of biomedical research and graduate fellowships.

Other programs such as the HBC Investigator Support and the Equipment Purchase Contribution to Department are occasionally offered by the HBC when funds are available:

  • HBC Investigator Support in Unique Circumstances:
       On occasion, investigators are faced with the unexpected termination of a grant, or with a gap in funding due to budgetary issues in the funding agencies. The HBC has provided relief under such situations when a request from an investigator has been deemed to be meritorious.
  • Equipment Purchase Contributions to Departments:
       Where a special need clearly exists, HBC has occasionally contributed matching funds to departments to enable the purchase of specialized, multi-user equipment items that would enhance the research capabilities of a number of HBC Investigators.
