Bowdoin and INBRE Collaborators Receive $18.4 Million Grant

Bowdoin is one of 13 participating institutions in a program that just received an $18.4 million grant to strengthen biomedical research and workforce training in Maine. The National Institute of Health awarded the five-year grant to the IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE), a coalition of Maine colleges, universities, and research institutions.

MDI Biological Laboratory, the coalition’s lead organization, noted in its recent announcement that this funding ensures the continuation of the INBRE program, which since 2001 “has brought more than $93 million in federal funds into Maine, improved the state’s research infrastructure, and trained more than 2,000 Maine students in biomedical research techniques.” At Bowdoin, INBRE funds a variety of biomedical research opportunities for both students and faculty each year, in addition to helping the College acquire equipment, supplies, and electronic journals to enhance research.
