Bioengineering Research Partnership (BRP) Applications

Purpose of the Award

  • A BRP is a multidisciplinary research team applying an integrative, systems approach to developing knowledge and/or methods to prevent, detect, diagnose, and treat disease and understand health and behavior.


  • Must include bioengineering expertise in combination with basic and/or clinical investigators.
  • May propose design directed or hypothesis-driven research in universities, national laboratories, medical schools, private industry and other public and private entities.
  • Each BRP should bring together the necessary engineering, basic science and/or clinical expertise to focus on a significant area of bioengineering research within the mission of the NIH.
  • A BRP can vary in size and exhibit diverse forms of organization, participation, and operation.
  • No single type of BRP fits the needs of every area. Rather, the size, structure, and operation of a BRP are determined by the proposed research.
