About the SCORE in the Metabolic Syndrome

The SCORE (U54 Specialized Center of Research Excellence, Karen Reue, PhD) in the Metabolic Syndrome is an NIH-funded program that will support grantees at levels of $25,000 – $50,000 for one year of seed funding for novel research projects that investigate sex as a biological factor in metabolic disease.  The intent is to attract new investigators to the field of sex differences in disease, to provide resources to enhance the ability to perform research relevant to sex differences at UCLA, and to accelerate project development to prepare investigators for applications for further NIH funding.
