Montana INBRE Research Core


 

The overall goal of MT INBRE III’s Research Core (RC) is to build a statewide, interdisciplinary research
network to address significant health issues among Montana’s rural and tribal communities. Through close collaboration with MT INBRE III’s Administrative, Community Engagement, and Bioinformatics and Biostatistics Cores, the RC will provide opportunities for investigators across the network to develop research programs focused on infectious diseases, environmental health, and health disparities. The goals of these programs include not only developing successful research projects but also sustaining them for the long term.

 

Additionally, the RC will be invested in the successful career trajectory of the Project Leaders themselves and in the pipeline development of the students working with them in their research. MT INBRE III aims to expand research opportunities for students and enhance biomedical curricula from K-12 through baccalaureate education in order to strengthen the pipeline to careers in health research and increase the scientific and technological knowledge of the state's workforce. The undergraduate involvement in these MT INBRE III projects will accomplish INBRE III’s aim to expand research opportunities for students and enhance biomedical curricula from K-12 through graduate education in order to strengthen the pipeline to careers in health research and increase the scientific and technological knowledge of the state's workforce.
