  1. 1. Maine IDeA Patricia H. Hand, Ph.D. PI, Maine INBREMount Desert Island Biological Laboratory
  2. 2. IDeA Institutional Development AwardIDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE)Patricia Hand, PhD, Maine INBREJoan Hunt, PhD, Kansas INBRE IDeA StatesCenters of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE)J. Donald Capra, MD, Oklahoma COBRERichard J. Bridges, PhD, Montana COBRECharles G. Irvin, PhD, Vermont COBRE
  3. 3. INBREIDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence• A statewide multi-disciplinary research network of doctoral degree- granting, research and undergraduate institutions• Build and increase research capacity by supporting faculty, fellows and students at participating institutions• Provide bioinformatics tools, training, and expertise• Provide undergraduate faculty and students research support, serve as “pipeline” to health research careers• Provide outreach to students at undergraduate institutions, community colleges and tribal colleges• Enhance statewide science and technology knowledge base
  4. 4. ME-INBRE: Comparative Functional GenomicsResearch Institutions MDI Biological Laboratory (Lead) The Jackson Laboratory The University of MaineUndergraduate Institutions Bates College Bowdoin College Colby College College of the Atlantic Southern Maine Community College University of Maine - Honors College University of Maine at Farmington University of Maine at Fort Kent University of Maine at Machias University of Maine at Presque IsleExamples of Maine INBRE Programs
  5. 5. Charting the Course -A Partnership for Decision Making • INBRE Planning Grant – In state competition (AAAS), NIH Study Section • NIH/IDeA leadership, guidelines and review • Listen & learn – institutions, faculty, students • INBRE Steering Committee • INBRE External Advisory Committee • Maine Innovation Economy Advisory Board • State EPSCoR Committee – quarterly meetings • PI/NIH
  6. 6. How Do We Measure Success? • Competitive renewals in 2004 & 2009 • Growth of Network from 6 institutions to 13 • Tracking Progress: •Research, publications, presentations, grants, curriculum development, science majors, career advancement, recruitment, research infrastructure, changing the research culture, impact on state’s workforce & economy • State, Regional and National Collaborations
  7. 7. Highlights of Progress/Accomplishments • 1700 students trained • 175 jobs created or sustained • During last 5 year funding cycle, • 423 research grants to NIH, 120 (28%) awarded • 408 for 1st 3 years of current cycle, 141 (35%) awarded • 237 publications, 98 with undergraduate authors • 383 research presentations • 4 0f 12 (33%) of previously funded INBRE faculty graduated with independent research grants
  8. 8. INBRE Student Tracking 89% pursuing higher education or careers in health related fields
  9. 9. The People We ServeKristin Beale• Norridgewock, Maine• University of Maine at Farmington• INBRE short course, discovered biomedical research as a career• Research Assistant at MDI Biological Laboratory• Research: fertilization using Arbidopsis as model - highlighted in NYT, Huffington Post, published in Current Biology• PhD, Genetics, Brown University summer 2013
