Dear Colleagues:

As you may be aware, NCRR has awarded a U54 initiative entitled "Puerto Rico Clinical and Translational Research Consortium (PRCTRC)" which unites three medical schools in PR; PSM, UCC, and UPR. The major goal of this initiative is that RCMI supported institutions in PR share the necessary resources in order to augment the research productivity in targeted areas including; cancer, HIV/AIDS, neurosciences, and cardiovascular research. As part of the numerous activities of the grant, we are announcing a competition for pilot research projects. In the attachments you will find the program description and the application form.

Please, let me know if you need additional information.

Jose A. Torres-Ruiz, Ph.D.
