The Arkansas IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (Arkansas INBRE) is funded by a grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences under the Institutional
Development Award (IDeA) Program of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The IDeA program was established for the purpose of broadening the geographic distribution of NIH funding for biomedical and behavioral research. Currently
NIGMS supports INBRE programs in 23 states and Puerto Rico.
The Arkansas INBRE builds on the successful Arkansas Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network (BRIN) program that was established in 2001 under a grant from
the NIH. The Arkansas BRIN established a statewide network that links Arkansas institutions of higher education to establish a statewide infrastructure in support of a growing effort to build a biomedical research capacity in Arkansas.

AR-CURE project is hosting faculty from Genome Solver.org for a
one-day Bioinformatics workshop at Ouachita Baptist University.
Genome Solver focuses on using genomic sequence data from the Human
Microbiome as a bioinformatics Course-embedded Undergraduate
Research Experience (CURE). The one day (June 21st)
workshop will specifically focus on helping faculty who are new or
unfamiliar to bioinformatics. There is no cost associated with the
workshop and there are no restrictions on who can attend. Space is
limited. For more information visit:
