May 20, 2014 — Anne Salisbury wants to know more about biology. And she sees the INBRE Transition Scholarship she received from the University of Wyoming as a path toward that quest.
“I’m very excited about receiving the INBRE Transition Scholarship from UW. I think it will be an excellent opportunity for me to learn as much as I can about research and biology,” says Salisbury, of Rock Springs. “Since I’m planning on getting my degree in secondary education and biology, I know that being part of INBRE will be a great way for me to find exciting ways to teach my future students.”
Salisbury, who recently received her associate of science degree in general education from Western Wyoming Community College, is one of seven students from Wyoming’s community colleges who received INBRE Transition Scholarships to study and conduct research at UW this fall.
UW’s IDeA Networks for Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) program awards INBRE Transition Scholarships to outstanding life science students from Wyoming's community colleges where INBRE-sponsored research is conducted. For two years, students receive up to $2,500 each semester to UW to pursue degrees and receive training in UW research laboratories.
After their first semester, students join a UW faculty member's lab, where they will conduct research for the remainder of their degree programs.
UW is one of 22 institutions funded by the National Institutes for Health INBRE Program. INBRE funding is intended to enhance biomedical research capacity; expand and strengthen the research capabilities of biomedical faculty; and provide access to biomedical resources for promising undergraduate students throughout the eligible states.
Other students who received the scholarship include:
Cody -- Wyatt Fabrizio, Northwest College.
Comitan, Mexico -- David Rach, Northwest College.
Conrad, Mont. -- Rachel Lamb, Central Wyoming College.
Kinnear -- Russell Goff, Central Wyoming College.
Riverton -- Tyler Graham, Central Wyoming College.
Rock Springs -- Brent Rhodes, Western Wyoming Community College.
