We are facing a pandemic of the new Sar-CoV-2 coronavirus, which causes the respiratory disease COVID-19. The situation has disrupted everyone's lives in unprecedented ways. We understand that there is much concern and uncertainty, and that the situation is constantly and rapidly evolving. That is why the CienciaPR Team has activated its #CienciaBoricua community to educate, inform, and promote the well-being of our people. As always, in this emergency, we are ready to put science in service of Puerto Rico.

Welcome to the UPR-IPERT Program!

 

Welcome to the UPR- IPERT community! This program—your program—aims to make more university students from different disciplines and socio-economic profiles broaden their competencies in biomedical research topics and areas related to health.

We seek to train professionals who are persevering, empowered, committed to Puerto Rico and with an interdisciplinary vision of health.

We would like to recruit more members like you!
