Jun 13, 2014 - From staff reportsTyler Graham says he sees the INBRE Transition Scholarship he received to the University of Wyoming as his bridge to studying physiology and ultimately applying to dental school at the University of Nebraska.
"This scholarship means a lot to me," Graham said. "It's a real honor to work down in a lab in Laramie, because I know how difficult it is to get into a lab down there."
The Riverton resident, who recently received his associate of science degree in pre-health/biological sciences from Central Wyoming College, is one of seven students from Wyoming's community colleges who received INBRE Transition Scholarships to study and conduct research at UW this fall.
UW's IDeA Networks for Biomedical Research Excellence program awards INBRE Transition Scholarships to outstanding life science students from Wyoming's community colleges where INBRE-sponsored research is conducted. For two years, students receive up to $2,500 each semester to pursue degrees and receive training in UW research laboratories.
After their first semester, students join a UW faculty member's lab, where they will conduct research for the remainder of their degree programs.
