Network Institutions: Winthrop University

< Back to Network Institutions page

INBRE radically transformed undergraduate biomedical science research at Winthrop as well as the entire research culture on campus. Winthrop is focusing on three new strategic initiatives:

  1. Demonstrate INBRE sustainability at Winthrop University by internally supporting five biomedical research projects led by former INBRE target faculty.
  2. Further expand biomedical research capacity by adding five target faculty-led research projects.
  3. Staff and implement a science diversity initiative to recruit, educate, and train even greater numbers of students from underrepresented and disadvantaged groups for biomedical graduate research programs.

Since its founding in 1886, Winthrop University's central role in South Carolina has been to provide college educational opportunities for students from diverse and disadvantaged groups. The INBRE Winthrop Eagle STEM Scholars Program was established to increase the number of students from underrepresented and disadvantaged groups who directly matriculate into biomedical science PhD programs immediately after graduation. This student-centered, four-phase approach involves:  

  1. Recruitment of greater numbers of motivated and well-prepared high school science students
  2. Facilitated transition of students through the first two years of college
  3. Student long-term engagement (two academic years and two summers) in undergraduate research
  4. Facilitated transition of students to graduate school.
