Directory of Active Investigators

UPR Medical Sciences Campus



To achieve its goal of enhancing the research capacity at the UPR-MSC, the RCMI Program has identified different strategic objectives. One of these objectives is the development of a Directory of Active Investigators. This research directory is a web-based database containing information about active investigators in different fields of research at the UPR-MSC.

The Directory contains the following information about investigators:

First Name, Second Name, Family Name
Email Contacts
Area of Expertise
Research Interest

Directions to access the Directory:

To facilitate search of information, the profiles have been organized by research program, school and institutes. The menu on the left follows this structure making navigation easier. The directory can be searched for specified keywords utilizing the search engine available at the top of the page and selecting “only in current section”.  This action provides a list of profiles where the keywords were found.

Objectives of the Directory

  • Enhance the local research capacity by linking the local researchers and organizations together through presenting the research profiles of our active investigators
  • Enhance the local research collaborative works between local researchers and external organizations
  • Facilitate the identification and searching process about whom of local researchers working on what areas of research and to which schools/departments is he/she affiliated.
  • Present and disseminate, regionally and internationally, the local research and development potential and capacity of investigators at the UPR-MSC
  • Facilitate the review and evaluation process of research grant applications


Registering in the Directory

Active investigators not included in the Directory or who need to update their profiles or their research interest document are encourage to contact Ms. Katty Cespedes, Collaborations and Partnerships Liaison, at or at (787) 758 2525, Ext. 1621.
