The statewide Steering Committee establishes policies and operating procedures of the Idaho INBRE Network. It oversees the management of the network, identifies best practices, approves investigators and Scientific Mentors/Advisors in the Developmental Research Project Program, gives constructive review, and adjusts the evaluation plan. The committee also addresses the career-building needs of Idaho research faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduate students. The 19-member Steering Committee is chaired by Dr. Carolyn Hovde Bohach and includes the INBRE Program Leaders from each institution.
