Research Development

The Division of Research Development integrates those activities serving as focal points for fostering career development, such as the Professional Development Program, and a Pilot Project Program. The Professional Development Program consists of three sub-activities: a Targeted Development Program, a Course in Research Integrity and Survival Skills in Research and a Multidisciplinary Collaborative Research Seminar. This trio of activities has been designed to provide junior investigators with the necessary tools to succeed in a research career. The Pilot Project Program complements these efforts by supporting junior investigators involved in clinical and translational research. Both programs contribute to the NIH goal of orienting basic science to address the major health problems of the nation, especially pertaining to the Hispanic population in Puerto Rico.
