Welcome to the UPR-IPERT Program!

The UPR IPERT Program of the Interdisciplinary Research Institute at the University of Puerto Rico Cayey Campus existed during the period of 2017 - July 2022 with the objective that more university students at the undergraduate level in different disciplines and socioeconomic profiles expand their skills in topics biomedical research and areas related to health. The resources we share in this section were developed thanks to grant number R25GM121270 from the National Institutes of Health, a federal agency known by its acronym in English as the NIH and its institute, the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). We have the collaboration of UPR Humacao and CienciaPR. The content is the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official position of NIH.

You can access all the resources by registering in CienciaPR!

The resources developed by UPR-IPERT include:

  • Virtual seminars (webinars) that address biomedical research topics, as well as ethical, social and environmental aspects that affect health.
  • Tools to prepare your professional development plan (PDP)
  • Online Research Certificates: 6 Virtual Modules
  • Resources to improve your skills as a mentor (for teachers)
