What is MBRS?
Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS) programs are federally funded
programs that increase the number of underrepresented faculty, students, and
investigators who are performing research in the biomedical sciences.
programs support research by faculty members and minority serving institutions,
strengthen the institutions' biomedical research capabilities, and provide
opportunities for students to work as part of a research team.
The University of Texas at San Antonio has both MBRS-SCORE (Support of
Competitive Research) and MBRS-RISE (Research Initiative for Scientific
program supports UTSA faculty projects and helps them to develop projects that
will receive mainstream (primarily NIH R01) funding.
The RISE Program is
student oriented, and providing both financial and professional development
support for up to 40 undergraduates and 15 doctoral students while they pursue
training in biomedical research. The RISE Programs, Undergraduate RISE, and Ph.D.
RISE, are invaluable for the development of the next generation of
biomedical researchers. Applications to individual programs are available
on the program web sites.
