UVI Receives Grant for Biomedical Research

Delegate to Congress Donna M. Christensen has announced that the University of the Virgin Islands has been awarded $367,392 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to fund the university’s Minority Biomedical Research Support – Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (MBRS-RISE) program.
MBRS-RISE program targets students interested in careers in pharmacology, physiology and biological chemistry research. The program is funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences and is administered by program director Dr. Teresa Turner. Students supported by RISE must be interested in a career in biomedical research, work closely with faculty mentors on research projects, receive funding to work with off-island mentors during the summer and have specific responsibilities.
For more information on the MBRS-RISE program, contact Dr. Turner at UVI.
