The INBRE Program Meeting and Biomedical Sciences & Health Disparities Symposium on April 26, 2019, was a great success with students expanding upon their academic activities. We had many faculty comments about the impressive quality of research and the manner of professional presentation – INBRE students you did yourself proud!

The scores are in for the Top 4 INBRE Undergraduate Student Poster Presentations. These students are invited to attend and participate in the NIH IDeA Western Regional Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, on October 6 – 9, 2019. Registration, airfare, and lodging expenses will be covered by the INBRE program. The Top 4 scores are:

  • Terezie Cernosek, Chaminade University
  • Yaeko Tagami, University of Hawaii at Hilo
  • Nandini Bickel, Windward Community College
  • Maria Steadmon, University of Hawaii at Hilo

Well done and congratulations to all participants! We look forward to having you in the Student Research Experience program next semester or seeing you at graduation! Much success to you all.

A special ‘Thank You’ to all of you who participated in the INBRE Logo Contest. Who knew we had such a talented group of artists! We truly appreciate each and every one of you who took the time from your busy schedule to create some very unique and imaginative designs. The committee was impressed with the submissions overall, which really took the program’s key concepts to heart. So, as you can imagine, it was difficult to choose just one. With that being said….

Congratulations to
~ Diana Le ~
INBRE Student from Leeward Community College

As the winner of the INBRE Logo Contest, Diana will receive an award at the INBRE Program Meeting on April 26, 2019. Together with her design, skillset in Adobe Illustrator, and collaboration with the INBRE Logo Committee, we are very excited to share the new INBRE logo with all of you.

The new logo is available in two formats: Portrait (text on bottom) and Landscape (text on right). If you are planning to present in this year’s Biomedical Symposium, please contact us at inbre@hawaii.edu to obtain the logo files. As a reminder, the poster printing deadline to UH Manoa PBRC is Friday, April 19, 2019.

INBRE partner, University of Hawaii at West Oahu, showcased its new $32-million Administration and Health Science building on December 12, 2018. Completed approximately two years after the groundbreaking in November 2016, the nearly 44,000-square-foot building is the first structure added to the campus since the move to its current Kapolei location in 2012. Classes in the new structure begin with the spring 2019 semester. Besides providing a home to administrative functions, the building also houses classrooms for health sciences and laboratories for the teaching of anatomy, cellular biology and microbiology. The building features 10 classrooms (one of which is a computer lab), three labs and two support labs along with offices for the faculty and instructional staff. Read more here.
