On behalf of the Organizing Committee and as an Interim Chancellor, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the 39th Annual Research and Education Forum of the Medical Sciences Campus of the University of Puerto Rico that will take place on April 10-12, 2019. We are proud to continue hosting this great annual event in which members of our academic community will have the opportunity to disseminate their scientific contributions.
This year’s theme: “From Campus to Community: Challenges, Responses, and Reconstruction” invites us to reflect on the importance of continuing to investigate in spite of the difficulties sometimes experienced by the scientific community. The Annual Forum will offer a thought-provoking and stimulating scientific program and plenary session. Most importantly, the Forum also provides great opportunities for students, researchers and educators to share their creative work and results.
I look forward to welcoming you.
