INBRE Summer Program Mentors
Most investigators in the Thematic Research Areas work in the general area of molecular and cellular biology and multidisciplinary approaches to common problems are strongly encouraged.
Faculty applying for a fellowship should contact a potential mentor at one of the lead institutions, with a research area of common interest. The prospective team (faculty and mentor) will then jointly prepare a written proposal. The criteria for evaluating these proposals will include training potential and experience of the mentor, potential for future extramural funding of the collaboration, progress from a previous AR BRIN fellowship award, if applicable, and potential for continuation of the project with involvement of undergraduate students, during the academic year. Inclusion of women and minority participants is highly encouraged.
The student summer research program is open to all undergraduate math and science majors. The program offers two tracks, one for the science majors (e.g., biology & chemistry) who are interested in pursuing a career in biomedical research. A second track designed specifically for math and computer science majors is available for students who are interested in learning more about how to apply their math and computer skills in the area of biomedical research. Undergraduate students interested in applying for either of these summer fellowships are asked to identify three potential research areas/mentors from the list of mentors below. Students who are enrolled at one of the lead institutions may apply for a fellowship at a campus other than their home campus. Every effort will be made to match students to one of the three research areas they identify in their application.
