The Oklahoma IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence
(OK-INBRE) is a grant awarded by the National Institutes of Health
Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Program to the University of
Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. OK-INBRE consists of a network of
institutions statewide, including research-intensive institutions,
primarily undergraduate institutions and community colleges. OK-INBRE
builds State capacity to carry out biomedical research by supporting
promising new faculty, recruiting students into biomedical research
careers, and sustaining vital core facilities.
The scientific themes of OK-INBRE are multi-disciplinary, targeting
the fields of Cancer, Developmental Biology and Infectious Diseases.
This thematic focus is closely linked with the strategic research plans
of the two lead biomedical research-intensive institutions, the OU
Health Sciences Center and the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation.
Support for students is provided through summer internships,
participation in INBRE faculty research projects, and educational
programs in bioinformatics and genomics.
The primary core
facilities are focused on functional genomics. An integrated network of
bioinformatics facilities dedicated to supporting research in functional
genomics is supported, as well as the development of a new proteomics core facility.
