Southwestern Oklahoma State University and two faculty members in Weatherford are recipients of INBRE research mentor grants as a collaborating institution with the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.

The awards are part of a biomedical research grant through the Oklahoma IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (OK-INBRE), a grant administered through the National Institutes of Health.

Dr. Andrea Holgado is working with students Taylor Baxter of Broken Arrow and Lata Koirala of Weatherford, while Dr. Tim Hubin is partnering with Candace Baker of El Reno.

The grant supports a summer research program to provide training and research experiences to undergraduate students. Students in the program have the opportunity of gaining first-hand experience working on innovative biomedical research projects with guidance from their faculty mentors.
