This chapter examines how distributed biomedical research centres help in initiating biomedical research. It finds that each research centre has set aside funding particularly to support a collaboratory in the field of biomedical research. These centres play a key role in providing funding for young researchers and in encouraging them to generate pilot data for a specific biomedical research project. They also designate speakers to offer an educational program along with providing cores and services to respective members at affordable prices. These centres have also provided funding and established the necessary infrastructure for facilitating collaboration among members of geographically distributed research centres.

Keywords:   research centres, funding, pilot data, biomedical research, educational program
