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 Randi Hughes.


  • Name: Randi Hughes
  • Hometown: Scottsbluff
  • School: Chadron State College

The human body has always fascinated me and I plan to pursue a career in the health sciences. I have a passion for dentistry and hope to open my own dental clinic one day. My goal is to create a positive environment to improve oral health for the community and the people in it.

I'm excited to be part of the INBRE program and I hope to discover new ideas and understand the human body on a new level through the scientific work I do.

I am blessed to be a part of the INBRE scholar program and through it I hope to accomplish a variety of things. I am equally excited to be working with Dr. Greg Oakley on his cancer research at the UNMC College of Dentistry in Lincoln.
