Twenty-eight students from nine different undergraduate and community college programs have joined the Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) program this summer.

The program was created to:

  • Expose students to serious biomedical research;
  • Build a statewide biomedical research infrastructure between undergraduate and graduate institutions; and
  • Strengthen each undergraduate institution's infrastructure and increase its capacity to conduct cutting-edge biomedical and behavioral research.

Below, we get to know more about INBRE scholar Elizabeth Hutfless.

I like solving problems. I am grateful that there are programs like INBRE because it surrounds me with problems and people who like solving problems. It's as if the world is trying to talk and science lets me listen.

My interest in science is born from enthusiastic teachers, family vacations to interesting places, farm life and fish tanks. I plan to pursue a career in science. I always want to know what's going on now, and I want to know what's next. I want to know the truth. Science is a way to uncover the truth.

People want experiences that satisfy them, and programs like INBRE generously allow them to see what suits them and meet outstanding individuals in their element.
