The Idaho INBRE Network is supported by the Administrative Core led by Dr. Carolyn Hovde Bohach, which provides logistical support for the Network by facilitating systematic communication among investigators, providing training and mentoring for faculty and students, overseeing research activities, and assuring investigator access to state-of-the-art research facilities. Six committees are overseen by the Administrative core as outlined in the figure above.
The statewide Steering Committee establishes policies and operating procedures of the Idaho INBRE Network, oversees the development of relevant workshops, lecture series and progress reviews of mentoring teams. The 15-member Steering Committee is chaired by Dr. Carolyn Hovde Bohach and includes representatives from each institution.
The External Advisory Committee (EAC) provides scientific expertise, advice to the Steering Committee and Director on scientific and administrative matters. They also monitor the progress of the Idaho Network toward competitiveness and sustainability. The members were selected for their scientific knowledge, experience with mentoring, grantsmanship and expertise in building sustainable research programs.
Our Senior Advisory Research Committee (SARC) specifically oversees the research activities of the Idaho Network. The SARC advises the Director on the distribution and use of resources related to research throughout Idaho, monitors mentoring relationships, reviews non-competing renewals of INBRE-funded investigators and oversees the appointment of new faculty participants. The SARC consists of senior researchers with strong records of publication and extramural grant support.
The mission of the Idaho Biomedical Research Board (IBRB) will be to develop statewide strategies to sustain key elements of the biomedical research Network patterned after the INBRE model. The IBRB will be compromised of prominent academic, business, and political leaders in Idaho with an interest in growing the biomedical research enterprise. Development of the IBRB is in the beginning stages.
