INBRE Scholars Program

"I love the work I do because I can say at the end of the day I've done something to further scientific knowledge." - Nick Palermo

Dr. Zimmerman and students

The INBRE Scholars program is a major success of the NE-INBRE. The program serves a dual purpose by providing meaningful research experiences for scholars and a pipeline of talented undergraduate students to participate in the research projects conducted in the laboratories on participating campuses. More than 130 undergraduate students have successfully completed the program. Of those 44 percent have gone on to graduate school, 35 percent have entered professional school and 15 percent are in the scientific workforce in some capacity.
