This subproject is one of many research subprojects utilizing the resources provided by a Center grant funded by NIH/NCRR. The subproject and investigator (PI) may have received primary funding from another NIH source, and thus could be represented in other CRISP entries. The institution listed is for the Center, which is not necessarily the institution for the investigator. The Outreach Core enhances biomedical research by coordinating and providing summer research fellowships and short courses for INBRE Outreach Institutions, seminar series, and symposia for college and graduate students, and all level of faculty across the state of Maine. For the summer of 2005, 16 INBRE undergraduate fellowships were awarded. Summer fellows select their mentor from any of the Maine INBRE institutions and conduct a research project in comparative functional genomics. In addition to fellowships awarded to students from Maine INBRE, two additional fellowships are awarded to students from any non-INBRE institutions in Maine. In 2005, non-INBRE fellowships were awarded to students from Maine Maritime Academy and the University of New England. Maine INBRE students participated in six different laboratory short courses including one new course: Molecular Biology of Crustacean Neuropeptides (Bowdoin College). Courses are offered for all participating INBRE institutions and bring together leading faculty from within INBRE programs and other federally funded research programs. For the grant period, 45 undergraduate students from across all participating institutions will have participated in hands-on laboratory short courses. The Outreach Core coordinates two seminar series. The Visiting Scientist Series brings nationally recognized investigators to Maine and the Scientific Speakers program organizes seminars within Maine. In the grant year, nine scientists have come to Maine to deliver seminars and interact with Maine INBRE students and faculty. The intra-state Scientific Seminar series has included seven seminars spread across the state. With major support from Maine INBRE and the Outreach Core, the Maine Biological and Medical Sciences Symposium is annually held at MDIBL. The 2006 MBMSS was held April 28-9, 2006 and included over 125 faculty and student participants in five scientific sessions: Genetics and Genomics, Physiology, Marine and Field Research, Computational Biology, and Infectious Disease. There was also a grantsmanship workshop and poster session.
