Scientific Themes

Core FacilitiesUnderstanding the structure and function of viruses, and how cells communicate are the major focus areas of these themes.

The scientific focus of the INBRE program is based on the strengths and expertise of campus faculty in the areas of cancer biology, cell signaling, and infectious disease. Collaborative arrangements between undergraduate faculty and research mentors are integral to the development of the focus areas and help lead to a greater understanding of the structure and function of viruses and how cells communicate. Together, faculty and mentors engage, inspire and educate students to pursue scientific careers in Nebraska.
