Undergraduate Coordinator Office

The overall goal of the Undergraduate Research Office continues to be the support of improved and expanded biomedical research experiences for undergraduates on K-INBRE campuses. The Core will do this by 1) Soliciting and qualifying programs submitted by the 10 Campuses to attract and retain promising students into biomedically-related science majors and to involve these students in cutting edge research; 2) Assist the Coordinators at K-INBRE participating institutions in implementing their programs; 3) Work with the Communications Core to continue and expand communication to trainees through networking via the videoconferencing network; 4) Assist the PI and staff in the implementation of symposia and workshops where students can present their research and hear research presentations by internationally recognized scientists; and 5) Supervise the award of funds to support Summer Scholars, Translational Research Scholars, Community Based Scholars, Bioinformatics Scholars, and Star Trainees.
