The Regional Alliance of INBRE Networks (RAIN) is a multi-state, multidisciplinary biomedical research coalition of complementary INBRE grant-recipient. INBRE stands for the “IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence,” which is a capacity-building research grant funded through the National Institute of General Medical Sciences division of the National Institutes of Health. Among other things, INBRE grants are designed to enhance biomedical research capacity, expand and strengthen the research capabilities of biomedical faculty, and provide access to biomedical resources for promising undergraduate and graduate students within eligible states. Participating RAIN states share complementary biomedical and public health challenges and opportunities, such as small populations spread over large geographic areas, isolated undergraduate institutions serving underrepresented populations, and the need to pool and share limited scientific expertise and materials.
