The overall mission of the SCORE Program at UTSA is to significantly increase the number of underrepresented minorities conducting biomedical research and behavioral research. To this end, a major goal of our SCORE program is to develop the biomedical and behavioral research capabilities of our faculty at UTSA.
Currently the SCORE program sponsors 10 NIH-supported research projects in Biology (2 projects), Biomedical Engineering (2 projects), Chemistry (2 projects), Electrical Engineering (1 project), Psychology (2 projects), and Physics (1 project) for the periods of 03/15/09 - 03/31/16 at an NIH commitment of approximately $11.3 million. The goal of the SCORE Program at UTSA is to develop the research capabilities of the faculty and to increase the percent of SCORE faculty with MARC and RISE research students, as well as students from other diversity programs at UTSA.
The SCORE office remains open from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (Monday through Friday), except on university holidays.
