About Us

The overall mission of the MBRS Program at UTSA is to increase significantly the number of underrepresented minorities conducting biomedical research and behavioral research. To this end, a major goal of our MBRS-SCORE program is to develop the biomedical and behavioral research capabilities of our faculty at UTSA.

Currently the SCORE program sponsors 16 NIH-supported research projects in Biology (6 projects), Biomedical Engineering (2 projects), Chemistry (2 projects), Electrical Engineering (2 projects), Psychology (2 projects), Computer Science (1 project), and Physics (1 project) for the periods of 08/01/07 - 03/31/16 at an NIH commitment of approximately $16.7 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 (BSE 2.304D-program administration) remains open from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (Monday through Friday), except on university holidays.


Expected final date for any new SCORE submission to NIH will be
September 25, 2013
