INBRE grant and awards lead to important addition to chemistry lab

BATESVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - Four Lyon students and two faculty members have received awards from the IDeA Network for Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) for their research efforts and work in various aspects of Lyon’s science programs.

The INBRE Undergraduate Student Mentoring Program gives fellowships to Arkansas juniors and seniors majoring in science, math, and computer science so they may participate in summer research programs at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, University of Arkansas at Little Rock, or the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. These fellowships also include stipends and budgets for research supplies as well as travel expenses to present the students’ summer research at national conferences.

The students who received these fellowships were Jason Lochmann, ’16, Jean de Dieu Mugiraneza, ’16, Megan Parks, ’17, and Jami Schmidt, ’17.

Dr. Irosha Nawarathne, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, received a Competitive Instrumentation Award for $49,500, which she used to purchase a Spinsolve Education Benchtop Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectrometer.
