This initiative is funded through the 2012 HHMI Undergraduate Science Education Program at the University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez, Enhancing Advanced Educational Opportunities in STEM fields for Minority Students at UPR-M.

The objective of this site is to enhance access of UPRM students to research opportunities by implementing an Automatic Biology Student Database that contains the student’s basic information as well as a student unique science-interest profile generated from key words. Using this database, off-campus research programs soliciting students that arise throughout the year will be automatically matched to undergraduate students with the desired profile. Once a match is formed, the undergraduate student will be forwarded the information automatically through the university email system.
