Support of Competitive Research (SCORE) is a developmental program that seeks to increase the research competitiveness of faculty at institutions that have a historical mission focused on serving students from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral research as defined by the National Science Foundation. The UTSA SCORE program supports UTSA faculty projects and helps them to develop projects that will receive mainstream (primarily NIH R01) funding.

National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS)-funded researchers seek to answer important scientific questions in fields such as cell biology, biophysics, genetics, developmental biology, pharmacology, physiology, biological chemistry, bioinformatics, computational biology, selected aspects of the behavioral sciences, and specific cross-cutting clinical areas that affect multiple organ systems. NIGMS also provides leadership in training the next generation of scientists to assure the vitality and continued productivity of the research enterprise.


The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the primary Federal agency for conducting and supporting medical research. Helping to lead the way toward important medical discoveries that improve people’s health and save lives, NIH scientists investigate ways to prevent disease as well as the causes, treatments, and even cures for common and rare diseases.
