Second CienciaPR Symposium


At Ciencia Puerto Rico we often receive questions from students pursuing graduate studies in science, engineering or mathematics who are seeking information on how best to prepare themselves for a professional career inside or outside academia. One of our goals is to support the scientific community and connect them with role models, mentors, experts and opportunities to assist in their education and training.

It is with this purpose that in collaboration with the RCMI Program of the University of Puerto Rico (UPR), we are pleased to present our second educational symposium entitled:
