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 dad was a doctor, so growing up I was always exposed to the health sciences and dreamed of being a doctor like my dad. Science affects us every day whether we realize it or not so to be able to understand it more and help other people is why I really want to be in science.
The INBRE program is a good way to gain more experience in the field of biomedical research and see what types of research I might be interested in. I'm hoping to learn more about research and the types of jobs available and all the opportunities that exist in the field of my choice.
