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.

My older brother, Bill, encouraged me to pursue a career in science. I find it exciting to try to learn and understand new things that have never been researched before. I hope to pursue a career in chemistry by getting a Ph.D. and doing research.
The INBRE program has shown me the numerous opportunities that a career in the sciences holds that I otherwise would not have known about.
