SWOSU Receives Summer Research Mentor Grants
Southwestern Oklahoma State University has received funding from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) as a collaborating institution with a biomedical research grant through the Oklahoma IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (OK-INBRE).
The award is funded by The National Institutes of Health.
Three SWOSU faculty researchers are the latest recipients of the INBRE research mentor grants. They, along with the student researchers, are: student Oba Hughes and mentor Dr. William Kelly, Department of Chemistry/Physics; student Brianna Lumpkin and mentor Dr. Muatasem Ubeidat, Biology Department; and student Trisha Ajoleza and mentor Dr. Timothy Hubin, Department of Chemistry/Physics.
The grants, in part, support a summer undergraduate research program to provide training and research experiences to undergraduate students. The program allows students first-hand experience working in biomedical research laboratories. The faculty researchers serve as mentors to guide undergraduate students into the exciting world of scientific research.
