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. MBRS-RISE 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.
UTSA has both MBRS-SCORE (Support of Competitive Research) and MBRS-RISE (Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement) funding.
The MBRS-SCORE program supports UTSA faculty projects and helps them to develop projects that will receive mainstream (primarily NIH R01) funding.
The MBRS-RISE program is student oriented, and provides both financial and professional development support for up to 40 undergraduates and 15 doctoral students while they pursue training in biomedical research. The MBRS-RISE programs, Undergraduate RISE and PhD RISE, are invaluable for the development of the next generation of biomedical researchers. Applications to individual programs are available on the program web sites.
