Project: Research project

Description

The Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS) program housed in the
Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Howard University, has the
overall objective of providing "bridge support" to allow an expansion of
the research base in the biological sciences. In doing so,, the
institution is able to enhance the number of faculty who are able to
attract external funding from mainstream sources. As a result of this
support, the training capacity of the requisite department's graduate and
undergraduate programs are considerably strengthened. One of the major
results of an enhanced research training base is to continue to make a
significant contribution to the national minority biomedical scientists
pool (PhDs). This application is comprised of subprojects from the departments
of anatomy, biochemistry, biology, microbiology, physiology and psychology. They encompass research in
molecular biology, gene regulation, cellular functions, pathophysiology
and behavioral responses. This application has brought a new cadre of
investigators into the program thereby enhancing the impact of the MBRS
program on this institution.
