An Emerging Collaborative and Multidisciplinary Research Presence
The Biomolecular Research Center at Boise State is a collaborative research center designed to provide a supportive environment for interdisciplinary research and education with opportunities for students and faculty members alike. The focus of the BRC is the study of biomolecules with emphasis on proteins and protein interactions. The BRC represents a comprehensive collection of instrumentation and facilities ideal for the characterization of biomolecules and their role in a variety of biomedical and environmental processes. Partnerships exist between the Center and Idaho-BRIN/INBRE, UI, ISU, the Boise VA Medical Center, The College of Idaho, and Northwest Nazarene University. To support current and future collaborative science, the BRC provides seminars, training workshops, and other networking opportunities. The mission of the center is to facilitate multidisciplinary research and research training programs in biomolecular sciences with a goal of increasing the level of biomolecular research achieved at Boise State University.
