Program Overview

NIH and the National Science Foundation (NSF) have supported the International Cooperative Biodiversity Groups (ICBG) program to address the interdependence of biodiversity exploration for potential applications in health, with investments in research capacity that support sustainable use of these resources, the knowledge to conserve them, and equitable partnership frameworks among research organizations in the U.S. and low- and middle-income-countries (LMICs), as defined by the World Bank.

ICBG supports international, public-private, interdisciplinary research teams in the exploration and discovery of novel compounds and extracts from nature with potential for development as therapeutic agents for multiple disease targets while building research capacity in partnering countries.
