Dr. Ubaldo Córdova wants to make sure that young scientists and faculty in Puerto Rico have a support system for professional development.

Dr. Ubaldo M. Córdova knew from a very early age that he wanted to be a scientist. He confirmed this thought when he had to complete a special project for his geography class in high school. For this project, a shy and introvert Ubaldo, built a geography map of Puerto Rico. He designed a very precise map that marked the Island’s municipalities using colorful sand. Based on the sophistication of his design- where the different colors of sand did not mix and every piece fit perfectly- his teacher told him that he would become an engineer.

Estimados tod@s:


Michigan State University tiene un excelente programa aún aceptando solicitudes para investigación en verano. El programa llamado Undergraduate Summer Research Training Program provee una oportunidad para que estudiantes se entrenen en áreas de biología reproductiva y ciencias de desarrollo. Además, recibirán “workshops” para prepararse para la escuela graduada.
