Program Overview

The Pre-Biomedical Research emphasis area is designed to provide the basic science and general education courses needed to transfer to a biomedical research program at a four-year college/university and to successfully complete a degree program in Biomedical Research. This degree of study, located on our Scottsbluff Campus, provides one student per year the opportunity to be accepted into the INBRE {Nebraska Biomedical Research Program} and attend one of six universities in Nebraska that participate in the program. Biomedical researchers conduct important research aimed at improving healthcare and treating and preventing disease. Most have a Ph.D. or are medical doctors. An Associate of Science degree in Biomedical Research can give you the strong foundation in biology and chemistry you will need to pursue this field.
