Score Among 26 Students In Biomedical Research Project

Every year a new group of INBRE scholars comes to UNMC, Creighton University Medical Center and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to learn about biomedical research. 

This year brings an eclectic mix of students including a 15-year-old who is the youngest ever to enter the program, a psychology major who would like to be a dentist, and an expectant mother. 

The Institutional Development Award Program (IDeA) Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) program is overseen by James Turpen, Ph.D., professor of genetics, cell biology and anatomy at UNMC. Dr. Turpen is the principal investigator of the $17.2 million National Institutes of Health grant that funds the program.
