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.

Baptist University students won 4 of the 15 "Speak Simply"
national awards in the Undergraduate Research Poster Contest at the
American Chemical Society (ACS) National Meeting in San Diego
on Monday, March 2016. Approximately 1,400 undergraduates from
across the nation were eligible to compete in the contest. Ouachita
students received more awards than any other institution. The
contest requires that students summarize their scientific research
projects in simple language free of technical jargon. The students
have about two minutes to communicate why their individual research
project is important.
The 4 students winning the "Speak Simply" awards and their faculty
research mentors were Jessica Compton, senior
chemistry and biology double major from Bismarck, AR (Dr. Joe
Bradshaw); Nathan Hall, senior chemistry and
biology double major from Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and
Jonesboro, AR (Dr. Grover Miller, UAMS);
senior biology major from Benton, AR (Dr. Ruth Plymale); and
Rachel Tucker, senior chemistry and
biology double major from Fordyce, AR
Joe Bradshaw). Both Nathan Hall and Rachel Tucker are two-time
winners, having won in 2015 as well.
In the four years that the ACS has been conducting the "Speak
Simply" contest at the national meeting, Ouachita students have
garnered 18 of the 60 awards, by far the most of any one
