CO-ADD Chemistry Prize

The University of Queensland in Australia for the Community for Open Antimicrobial Drug Discovery (CO-ADD) CO-ADD Chemistry Prize is a competition open to all academic researchers and students worldwide, who can submit an abstract on their chemistry research, and an optional video on how chemistry can fight the war on superbugs and help find the next antibiotic.

Four prizes will be awarded based on the diversity of compounds chemists can produce. We offer a prize pool of US$5,500  to go towards sample preparation costs. The entries will be judged by an international panel of chemists and microbiologists, and we also have a people’s choice category.

Closing date for applications: January 15, 2016.

UCSD BMES | Project Team Application

Hello CHEM students,

The first application for BMES (Biomedical Engineering Society) Project Team’s research teams is officially open! This application will be due Saturday, 11/14, by 11:59 PM.

Our goal is to promote undergraduate involvement in biomedical research and design by providing a team environment, advising and mentorship, and other resources to teach valuable professional skills. We support research projects in faculty labs and biomedical entrepreneurial teams that compete in BMEIdea and DEBUT, which challenge students to develop and market devices that meet a clinical need.

Research project teams work in UCSD faculty labs on faculty-given projects. Team members will work directly with faculty and graduate students for the duration of the project, and will get the chance to present their research at Project Team showcases. Projects will run year-round until completion. BMES Project Team is affiliated with the Bioengineering department, but faculty members are looking for more than bioengineering majors to join their team, so all majors are welcome to apply!
Our application is continuously updated in “cycles” as we acquire more projects from faculty members. Each cycle will end approximately a week after the project descriptions for that cycle are posted. Please join our mailing list ( and join our Facebook page ( to receive updates on when cycles start and end.

If you interested in the administrative side of Project Team, please come to our committee meetings Mondays 6:00 to 7:30 PM on the 3rd floor of Powell-Focht Bioengineering Hall. We will be looking for help with project management as Project Team grows, so all help is welcome!

You must be a *paid* BMES member to join a project team. For all membership inquiries, please contact

Thank you and we look forward to reviewing your applications!
