What is NH-INBRE?
New Hampshire INBRE (IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence) is a program funded by the National Institutes of Health to develop a coordinated network of biomedical research and research training in New Hampshire. The program is part of the larger NIH IDeA program.
Who is NH-INBRE?
The NH-INBRE network is comprised of two “lead” research-intensive institutions, the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College and the University of New Hampshire; and the “Partner” primarily undergraduate institutions, Colby-Sawyer College, Franklin Pierce University, Keene State College, New England College, Plymouth State University and Saint Anselm College, along with the Community College System of New Hampshire.
What are the goals of NH-INBRE?
- Enhance the statewide, multidisciplinary and thematic biomedical research network consisting of Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth and the University of New Hampshire as lead institutions and a group of seven primarily undergraduate New Hampshire institutions (partners).
- Increase the biomedical research capacity in New Hampshire by supporting research and research training activities of faculty, fellows and students and the research culture at the participating institutions.
- Provide New Hampshire undergraduate faculty and students with research support and serve as a “pipeline” to health research careers.
- Enhance the science and technology knowledge base and economy of New Hampshire.
- Enhance the bioinformatics infrastructure that is required for modern biomedical research.
What does NH-INBRE do to achieve those goals?
The primary activity of NH-INBRE is identifying and funding outstanding biomedical researchers among faculty members of the Partner institutions so they can lead research programs that contribute to biomedical research and expose their students to top level biomedical research.
NH-INBRE further supports biomedical research and research training in New Hampshire by offering technical training programs, supporting facility renovation, sponsoring employment in research labs for undergraduates and supporting a Bioinformatics Shared Resource for bioinformatics utilization and training.
Students who are newly enrolled in NH-INBRE and have been accepted into a NH-INBRE research position need to complete a Registration Form. This is a ONE-TIME registration.
Students who are being supported by a NH-INBRE research position need to complete the required NH-INBRE Introduction to Laboratory Safety training module. This a requirement for payment! You can access the training module here: Introduction to Lab Safety.
NH-INBRE Guidance Documents
NH-INBRE has generated Guidance Documents to help students, steering committee, faculty and mentors to understand their role and responsibilities as part of NH-INBRE.
