NeuroID is a program designed to increase diversity in Neuroscience by providing opportunities to undergraduate students interested in this area and enhance their scientific knowledge, research capability, and social responsibility.
We provide a comprehensive research experience during the last two years of the bachelor’s degree at one of the mentors’ laboratories.
Professors in Neuroscience will have the opportunity to participate in seminars, workshops, and selected courses to enhance their knowledge in Neurobiology, and understanding of a research career.
In addition to the academic and research program, students will be exposed to a series of extracurricular activities in which they will use their acquired scientific knowledge for the benefit of their community.
“What would be ideal is for gender and race equality to exist in science, for everyone to be represented equally.” That is the biggest goal of Puerto Rican scientist, Dr. Carmen Maldonado-Vlaar, who is a distinguished researcher and mentor in the field of neuroscience.
In addition to contributing new knowledge to the field on the mechanisms of addiction, she has forged paths for the new generation of Latinx scientists.

Through this program, students age 18 years and older are introduced to the field of substance use and addiction research by participating in research internships with NIDA-funded scientists at universities across the United States. Students work with leading scientists for eight weeks during the summer and receive a stipend. The internship may be virtual or in-person and could include laboratory experiments, data collection, data analysis, formal courses, participation in lab meetings, patient interviews, manuscript preparation, and more. In addition, it is expected that each intern will deliver a formal presentation on his/her research project at the end of the internship.

This year, the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students 2020 (ABRCMS), was held virtually between 9 and 13 November 2020, as a security measure by the COVID-19.
2020 began with the south of Puerto Rico shaking, causing the collapse of schools, homes, and families that lost everything. Then the Covid-19 pandemic arrived, but the needs were still there. Given this, five women came together to create the “Network of Volunteers”… Read more.
