Description: The Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS) Program was created in response to a legislative mandate of increasing the participation of underrepresented (UR) minority faculty, investigators and students engaged in biomedical and behavioral research, and to broaden the opportunities for their participation in biomedical and behavioral research. To accomplish this goal, the Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (RISE) program provides institutional grants to establish research education programs at minority-serving institutions that will increase the preparation and skills of UR students in the biomedical and behavioral sciences as they academically advance in the pursuit of the Ph.D. degree in these fields.
