The Biomedical Research Center (BRC) at Boise State University (BSU) is a core facility focused on the study of biomolecules with emphasis on proteins and their molecular interactions. Since establishment in 2001, the BRC has been the administrative center for multiple programmatic and individual researcher-initiated biomedical research grant awards. These awards have made a significant impact on research and research infrastructure growth. Our research focused on co-authorship networks of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network (BRIN), Idaho Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Network of Biomedical Research (INBRE), and the Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) in Matrix Biology programs. These programs have established critical infrastructure, funding, leadership, and mentorship to support biomedical/biomolecular research throughout the state. Here we are utilizing VOSviewer to visualize combined bibliometrics of these programs, gaining insight into the breadth and depth of impact that these programs have to research in Idaho.
