Idaho State University Undergraduate Catalog 2006-2007
The Biomedical Research Institute embraces the latest advances in
biomedical engineering, biotechnology, nanotechnology, neuroscience and
bioinformatics and bio-signaling research in medicine, biology, and
healthcare. The Institute aims to further enhance the fulfillment of
the mission and goal of Idaho State University as the lead among Idaho
universities in the health professions.
The Informatics Research Institute (IRI) is an academic unit providing coordination
for several interdisciplinary degrees and research centers across campus.
Informatics is an integrative discipline that arises from the synergistic
application of computational, informational, organizational, cognitive, and
other disciplines whose primary focus is in the acquisition, storage and use
of information in a broad spectrum of domains.
of Emergency Management, (IEM)
located on the Idaho State University Boise Center Campus, was approved by the
Idaho State Board of Education in July 2003. The purpose of the Institute is to
offer workshops, courses, certificates, and in the future degrees, to meet the
professional and career development needs of Idahoans employed in or planning a
career in Emergency Management. The Institute delivers courses statewide
at various sites in Idaho
communities, to meet the needs of local first responders. Here is the link to the IEM registration website.
Idaho State University has established an Institute of Nuclear Science and
Engineering (INSE) with approval from the Idaho State Board of Education in
2003. The Institute is a collaborative entity among ISU, University of Idaho
and Boise State University. Under the INSE's administrative umbrella, the three
universities jointly focus on nuclear science and engineering education at the
combined Idaho Falls campus. Nuclear-related research in conjunction with the
new Idaho National Laboratory is also coordinated through the INSE at
University Place in Idaho Falls.
The 2+2 scholars program
is a special opportunity for students interested in pursuing a Bachelor
degree in nuclear engineering. While Idaho State University has offered
nuclear emphasis for its interdisciplinary engineering degree for many
it established the specific Nuclear Engineering B.S. degree in 2004 at
request of the U.S. Department of Energy. The University of Idaho and
State University are working together with ISU through the "2 + 2"
years at the main campus of one of the three universities and the
years in Idaho Falls at the University Place campus. The reason for the
location is to have special opportunities for the students in
the Idaho National Lab, which is a partner in this effort as well.
money, donated by AREVA to jump start the program, will be awarded to
elite group of students. Funding for the entire 2 years in Idaho Falls
cover tuition and fees, a book allowance and a small stipend. For

The Institute of Rural Health, established in 1989, is a
University-based research, education, and service organization providing
research, consultation and technical assistance to governments and communities
in the health field. Its work spans public health, health professions training,
community programming, and mental health areas.

The Institute has grown rapidly, now maintaining offices in Boise,
a Native American community (unspecified at Tribal request). The full-time and
student staff has grown from fewer than 10 during the first eight years to
nearly 70 in the 18th year. The organization’s grant portfolio has grown from
$2 million to more than $19 million with an annual budget of $5.5 million.
The mission of the Institute of Rural Health is to improve the health of rural
communities in Idaho
and the Intermountain Region, as well as the nation and the world through
research, education and service. The Institute is housed in the Kasiska College
of Health Professions at Idaho
