For investigators and institutions with several years of demonstrated research success, NINR supports Centers of Excellence.  These Centers, awarded using the P30 Core Grant mechanism, consist of several medium-sized developmental or foundational research projects (at the level of R21 projects) organized around shared resources and research infrastructure.  The individual projects focus on similar topics or research themes of strategic interest to NINR, while enjoying the benefits of a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary research environment.  By leveraging common resources, it is expected that the individual projects will demonstrate greater productivity and will develop into independent research projects, i.e. R01 projects, more quickly than they would as separate projects without a central infrastructure.
