ANNOUNCING

The IDeA Networks for Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) Scholars Program

The INBRE program aims to create a biomedical research infrastructure in Nebraska that provides research opportunities for undergraduate students and serves as a pipeline for those students to continue into graduate research. The program is a collaboration between Nebraska’s three Ph.D. granting institutions and nine undergraduate institutions located throughout the state.  This collaboration is intended to develop a culture that recognizes and appreciates the value of biomedical research and provide opportunities to pursue such research at the cutting edge of current technologies.  The three scientific themes of the INBRE program are Cell Signaling, Infectious Diseases and Structural Biology.

Undergraduate sophomore students at Creighton University are invited to participate in the INBRE Scholars program.  The scholars program provides summer fellowships for advanced research training at one of Nebraska’s Ph.D. granting institutions during the first summer, as well as research assistantships for working with INBRE Associates at Creighton University during the academic year and the second summer in the program.  This is a two-year program of support, with the intention of providing research opportunities for undergraduate students and serve as a “pipeline” for students to continue in health research careers.  If a scholar is admitted to a Ph.D. program in Nebraska, the INBRE program will provide support for the first year of graduate studies.
