Maine INBRE strengthens Maine’s capacity to conduct competitive biomedical research.

The Maine IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) is a collaborative network of Maine educational and research institutions led by the MDI Biological Laboratory and sponsored by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Maine INBRE members also include Bates College, Bowdoin College, Colby College, College of the Atlantic, MaineHealth Institute for Research, The Jackson Laboratory, Southern Maine Community College, the University of Maine, the University of Southern Maine, and the Universities of Maine at Augusta, Farmington, Fort Kent, Machias, and Presque Isle, and the University of New England.

Maine INBRE focuses on three areas:

  1. Creating a technically skilled workforce in Maine through biomedical research experiences for undergraduate students.
  2. Providing research support to faculty investigators to assist them in establishing research labs and increase their competitiveness for federal (NIH and other) biomedical research grants.
  3. Improving the research infrastructure available to INBRE institutions through a collaborative network of core facilities with state-of-the-art equipment and research resources.
