IRD Student Research Opportunities

Bridges to the Baccalaureate.
This NMSU program introduces Native American students from New Mexico community colleges to research experiences and advances them into Baccalaureate of Science degree programs in biomedical sciences; 70% of summer research participants have advanced to baccalaureate degree programs. The National Institutes of Health have funded the program since October 1992. Currently participating community colleges include Diné College at Shiprock, and the University of New Mexico branch at Gallup. Visit NMSU’s Bridges website for more information.

Late Lunch Student Research Presentation Series.
Each semester the IRD Program gives students the opportunity to present to their peers on projects, conference attendance, summer programs, etc. These events allow students to gain valuable speech and presentation experience.
