Welcome to Kentucky IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (KY INBRE)!

The KY INBRE (formerly KBRIN) is a collaborative network of biomedical researchers in state-supported and independent institutions of higher education within Kentucky and is funded through a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). Our website is packed with information to help biomedical researchers throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Subscribe to our weekly newsletter for more up-to-date information!

This grant (#5P20GM103436) has been funded by the NIH NIGMS awarded to University of Louisville as the lead institution. Dr. Martha Bickford, Program Director/Principal Investigator.

Pardon our dust! We are renovating sections of our website to align with the items in NIGMS’s current NOFO for INBREs, as well as improving user experience. Some links may no longer work or may have been moved to another location. 

Please contact our Communications Manager, Cyndy Buckhaults, if you have issues.
