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.

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.

Who is NH-INBRE?

The NH-INBRE network is comprised of two “lead” research-intensive institutions, the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth 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.

NH-INBRE supports a variety of research projects for junior faculty working at our Partner colleges. The research support helps faculty develop their projects to a point where they can then begin to seek research funding support on their own or in collaboration with other INBRE partners. NH-INBRE Research Themes

  • Microbial Pathogenesis
  • Molecular and Cellular Biology
  • Neurobiology and Behavior
  • Human Health

The NH-INBRE Goals are:

  • Enhance scientific, scholarly, and administrative interactions within the NH-INBRE network
  • Enhance biomedical research infrastructure at NH-INBRE institutions
  • Enhance research opportunities for students and faculty at NH-INBRE institutions
  • Enhance the science and research culture at NH-INBRE institutions
  • Enhance the bioinformatics and genomics infrastructure, training, and research activities at NH-INBRE institutions
  • Facilitate student transition to New Hampshire’s workforce
