CBM SMART Teams Archive

The SMART Team Program began in 2001 when Ameritech funded a grant for the MSOE SEPA program to establish a protein modeling project for high school students. The program has grown dramatically over the years, both in the number of Local SMART Teams as well as expansion to National SMART Teams outside the Milwaukee area.

Both the local and remote SMART teams are funded through an NIH-SEPA grant. In 2007, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute provided funding to establish regional SMART Teams across the country.
