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 Joe Christensen.

  • Name: Joe Christensen
  • Hometown: Audubon, Iowa
  • University: Creighton University

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.
