Reactivating our "Boricua Brains"

Edwin Rosado's picture

Each year, a great number of Puerto Rican scientists are distinguished with prestigious prizes and awards. In Puerto Rico, the United States and in many parts of the world, Puerto Rican scientific talent makes itself known. Being the only network of Puerto Rican scientists in the world, it is our job to celebrate the achievements and recognitions of the members of our community.

Thus, it is with great pleasure that we announce the re-activation of our "Cerebros Boricuas" (“Puerto Rican brains”) blog.

Our intention with this blog is to recognize the accomplishments of CienciaPR members.  Our goal: to promote and celebrate the Puerto Rican scientific talent, motivating current and future generations of scientists.

During November 7-10 the twelfth Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) took place in San Jose, California. ABRCMS is the largest professional conference for minority students in science, engineering and mathematics.

As in previous years, a large number of Puerto Rican students attended the conference. Ciencia Puerto Rico was not able to attend this year but we received news that a large number of students from Puerto Rican received awards.

Through this blog post we wish to acknowledge and extend our congratulations to the awardees. Thanks for representing Puerto Rico so well!
