Research Funding

The Center for Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics is supported primarily through an exploratory grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health: National Institutes of General Medical Sciences. CBSD is designated as a Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (CoBRE) by the NIH. This award project period runs from August 1, 2016- July 31, 2021. CoBRE grant support come in three sequential 5-year phases; CBSD is in phase 2, focusing on continuing to develop research infrastructure and providing junior investigators with formal mentoring and research project funding to help them acquire preliminary data and successfully compete for independent research grant support.

Indirect Costs (IDC or F & A)

Currently, indirect cost returns are split as follows: ORSP retains 50%, the college and department share 18% (typically 9% each, though varies by college), and the Center receives 32%. On a quarterly basis, the Center returns 9% of total indirect costs returns back to the PI's department.

For grants awarded July 2017 – June 2018, indirect cost returns were distributed 41% to ORSP, 27% to the college for the college, department and PI to share (typically 9% each, though varies by college/department arrangement) and 32% CBSD.

Previous to this, grants awarded before July 2017 had indirect cost returns distributed as such: ORSP retains 58%, the college and department share 16.8% (varies by college), and the Center receives 25.2%. The Center returns 50% of its share, 12.6%, to the department for the PI.

For additional information on indirect costs, please refer to the University of Montana’s policy for the return of IDC.
