MBRS SCORE Program

Administration

The primary goal of the MBRS SCORE Program for the Ponce School of Medicine is to improve the research capacity of basic and clinical investigators. In addition to contributing to the improvement of the faculty who are funded by the Program directly, it is expected that other faculty and students will also benefit from the improved research environment provided by the MBRS SCORE Program. A corollary of the improvement of the research capacity and research environment for faculty is that students will also reap the benefit of the more supportive and stimulating environment. The component of this interaction pertaining to students directly will be evaluated within the context of the MBRS RISE Program which started its operations this past July 2008. This sister program will focus on students and faculty training while the MBRS SCORE focuses on actual hands on research projects in faculty laboratories. Obviously, the two programs will be intimately intertwined. Thus, successful faculty research generates expanding student interest in, and commitment to, pursuit of careers in biomedical research. Interested and motivated students in turn will encourage and stimulate further development of faculty research endeavors.

In September, 2008, 10 projects were submitted to NIGMS for the new MBRS SCORE SC Program which is scheduled to begin at PSM in July, 2009.
