The Montana INBRE Program (IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence) is a five-year award (2014-2019) by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that builds on the previous successes of the first two five-year MT INBRE programs (2004-2014) and the three-year BRIN (Biomedical Research Infrastructure Networks) program (2001-2004) awarded to Montana State University. Montana INBRE continues to focus on increasing the biomedical research capacity of Montana by building research infrastructure, supporting faculty and student research, and fostering a state-wide collaborative network. The pathogenesis of infectious disease and health issues related to the environment are two of Montana INBRE’s research foci, areas in which the state is strategically positioned to excel. In addition, MT INBRE is expanding its research into the field of health disparities, an area of great relevance to the state. INBRE positions Montana as a leader in biomedical research and significantly increases education, research, and, ultimately, employment opportunities in the state.
Montana INBRE partner faculty and students who give presentations (including posters) and/or publish their work on projects funded wholly or in part by INBRE funds are required to acknowledge the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). Citation should read as follows:
