About Us

The Redox Biology Center (RBC) is organized as a broad-based interdisciplinary and multi-institutional entity involving researchers from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) and the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha (UNMC). The RBC is funded by the National Institute of Health grant P20 RR017675 from the COBRE program of the National Center for Research Resources.

The specific aims of the COBRE-supported Redox Biology Center (RBC) are to buttress and expand the existing strengths in redox biology in Nebraska by mentoring junior faculty to success, recruiting new faculty with complementary research interests and strategically enhancing biomedical research structure. Scientists are amalgamated from two major research institutions in the state (UNL and UNMC).

Membership

The Redox Biology Center welcomes applications from faculty at UNL or UNMC who are interested in being considered for membership. We are particularly interested in further broadening our base to include members whose research interests are in the general area of redox biology and who would benefit from and contribute to the activities sponsored by the RBC. Faculty interested in becoming a member of the Center should contact Dr. Donald Becker (dbecker3@unl.edu or 402-472-9652).
