The Mississippi-INBRE network seeks to enhance research competitiveness in the State and engage talented investigators and students in biomedical research projects that will impact the health of the citizens of Mississippi. The scientific focus of the MS-INBRE is obesity, cancer, and sexually transmitted diseases.


To accomplish its mission, three major efforts are underway:


Research Infrastructure

MS-INBRE has built a biomedical research infrastructure that includes several partner undergraduate institutions.  This effort involves establishment of research laboratories at undergraduate institutions and faculty training in research. Competitive grants are available for Mississippi faculty for research and curriculum development.


Student Pipeline

MS-INBRE has developed a student pipeline that places undergraduate student from partner institutions into biomedical research laboratories and into a community health outreach program. Students that participate in this program, experience hands-on biomedical research in the most competitive laboratories in the State or engage the community in health education and intervention. Competitive awards are available for Mississippi students for summer research or community outreach.


Core Facilities

MS-INBRE supports three core facilities that consist of a Genomics Core Facility at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, an Imaging Core Facility at the University of Southern Mississippi, and a Proteomics Core Facility at Mississippi State University. These facilities provide access to researchers in Mississippi to latest equipment and technical expertise. The MS-INBRE facilities are also available for student education and training.
