Welcome to UPR-PRISE a NIH/NIGMS-Funded undergraduate research training program in UPR-Ponce for Biology Major students

The University of Puerto Rico Ponce Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (PRISE) is a 5-year training program funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences grant # R25GM096955. By fostering competitive research with a particular focus on the biomedical sciences, UPR-PRISE advances the mission and goals of the University of Puerto Rico in Ponce. Additionally, our proposed research plan enhances the academic and technical capabilities of qualified undergraduate students creating a pipeline of well-trained students that complete B.S. degrees in Biology and pursue graduate studies in Biomedical Sciences. Special emphasis is also placed on responsible conduct in research, community-based learning and college retention.
