This subproject is one of many research subprojects utilizing the resources provided by a Center grant funded by NIH/NCRR. The subproject and investigator (PI) may have received primary funding from another NIH source, and thus could be represented in other CRISP entries. The institution listed is for the Center, which is not necessarily the institution for the investigator. The major goal of the Advancement in Research Initiative (ARI) was to work, in close collaboration with the different institutional research units within and outside the University of Puerto Rico Medical Sciences Campus, to develop the infrastructure to support high quality research, manage research resources and disseminate research-related information. To achieve this goal we identified the following specific aims: 1. To establish an infrastructure service unit that will provide support services that facilitated data analysis, editing of scientific publications and proposals, protection of intellectual property as well as dissemination of diversified funding opportunities to the research community. 2. To coordinate and maximize the use of shared instrumentation, create a research resources database, and maintain up-to-date communications services to initiate and/or expand collaborations and partnerships. 3. To develop a faculty and technical research development program that would establish a mechanism to reward research success; promote health disparities research; train young faculty and graduate students in the bioethical and survival skills necessary to be successful in a research career, and generate a comprehensive database of local successful investigators and potential collaborators. We expected that the ARI would become a focal point for integrating research resources on campus and will play an improtant role in developing new collaborations and alliances as well as assuring maximal utilization of available resources.
