Rust College Senior Receives Mississippi INBRE Research Scholars Award

Rust College Senior Receives Mississippi INBRE Research Scholars Award
Posted By: Reginald Culpepper on September 27, 2022

Rust College senior, Tianna Smith, was selected to receive the Mississippi IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) Research Scholars Award.

The Mississippi INBRE, organized by professors at the University of Southern Mississippi, is a network of colleges and universities designed to build a biomedical research infrastructure in Mississippi. Mississippi INBRE has three summer programs: Research Scholars (founded in 2004), Service Scholars (founded in 2013), and Outreach Scholars (founded in 2019). These programs are designed to give students hands-on experience in the field of biomedical research and public health.

Dr. J. Zhu introduced Ms. Smith to this organization and was accepted to participate in a 10-week summer community-based research internship for Mississippi and Louisiana college students at the Department of Biomolecular Sciences at the University of MS (Ole Miss).



Their mission is to reach out to Mississippians to improve health throughout the state and to engage talented researchers and students in biomedical research projects that will increase the state’s research competitiveness as well as impact the health of the citizens of Mississippi. One of Mississippi INBRE’s major efforts to engage talented researchers and students in biomedical research projects is accomplished through the student pipeline.

There are also academic-year research opportunities available at our partner undergraduate institutions. To learn more about the Mississippi INBRE msinbre@usm.edu. Tianna is the first person to receive this award at Rust College.
