INBRE provides biomedical research training opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students in Maine:
- The Summer Research Fellowship program provides undergraduate students with a mentored, hands-on biomedical research experience. Maine INBRE mentors conduct research in a variety of areas, from molecular toxicology, bioinformatics and genetics, to neuroscience.
- Short laboratory training courses for undergraduates.
- Travel awards and research support for graduate students.
Students attending an INBRE Undergraduate Partner Institution should also consult the institutional program description for special INBRE programs at their alma mater. Many of these institutions offer academic-year research opportunities.
Undergraduates at non-INBRE Maine colleges or universities are also eligible for some of these programs.
Statewide programs and funding opportunities for undergraduate studies in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) are available in STEM Undergraduate Programs.
The Institute for Broadening Participation (IBP) (pathwaystoscience.org) provides student and post-grad resources to increase access to STEM educational programs:
