KBRIN is now KY INBRE
KBRIN (Kentucky Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network) is rebranding to KY INBRE (Kentucky IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence). The NIH BRIN Program (2001-2004) was the precursor to the NIH National Institute of General Medical Sciences INBRE Program. In a year of so many changes and with a change in our Program’s directorship, we felt it was time to change our name to match that of our 24 sister programs located throughout the US and its territories.
With the change in name, also comes a change in branding – a new look, new social media platforms and soon, a revised website.
