Award Description: Minority Biomedical Research Support - MBRS: To strengthen the biomedical research and research training capability of ethnic minority institutions, and thus establish a more favorable milieu for increasing the involvement of minority faculty and students in biomedical research.
Project Description: MBRS/SCORE Program at City College of CUNY The goal of the SCORE program is to accelerate the transition of faculty members who are on the brink of obtaining R01 funding by providing support in the form of research funding and mentorship. The CCNY SCORE program has several readily assessable outcome measures: 1) accelerated progress toward meeting research goals; 2) increase the number of research publications by 25-50% ; 3) increase the number of presentations at national meetings by 15-50% ; 4) increase external funding for research by 15-50% ; 5) increased incorporation of research expertise into teaching/curriculum; 6) increased collaboration within CCNY and with individuals from other research institutions. The purpose of this supplemental application is to facilitate these objectives through the acquisition of equipment that can be shared by investigators in the current CCNY SCORE Program. We have carefully reviewed the needs of investigators in the program and are requesting funding for an Odyssey Infrared Imaging System, as well as a FTS temperature control unit for a 500 MHz NMR instrument and a Silicon Graphics workstation. These requests are in keeping with the scope of the parent grant and will contribute substantially to the research outcomes of the investigators currently funded by SCORE
Jobs Summary: The requested equipment will lead to greater research productivity of the SCORE investigators and will contribute to the creation and/or retention of high-skill equipment assembly jobs either by training students or the hiring of technicians and postdoctdoral fellows (Total jobs reported: 0)
Project Status: Not Started
