DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program

DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program

Applications due – May 9


The goal of the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is to prepare graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission, by providing graduate thesis research opportunities at DOE laboratories. The SCGSR program provides supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory/facility in areas that address scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories/facilities.


The Office of Science Priority Research Areas for SCGSR Program are:

  • Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR)
  • Basic Energy Sciences (BES)
  • Biological and Environmental Research (BER)
  • Fusion Energy Sciences (FES)
  • High Energy Physics (HEP)
  • Nuclear Physics (NP)

Translational Medicine Day (TMD)

SUBJECT: Invitation to Attend Translational Medicine Day 2019


You are invited to attend Translational Medicine Day (TMD), a conference-style event focused on the field of translational medicine, which aims to streamline the process through which medical discoveries end up in the healthcare space. By highlighting advancements in the field, we hope to inspire the next generation of doctors, biomedical engineers, and researchers.


Where: Medical Education and Telemedicine Building in the UC San Diego School of Medicine

When: Wednesday, March 6, 2019 from 2-7 PM

How: Learn more about the event here and REGISTER FOR FREE NOW at!


The event will feature many sessions, of which you are welcome to attend any and all that interest you, including:

– Keynote speech: “Crossing the Translational Divide – The windy Road from Basic Research to an Approved Drug”

Hear from Dr. Daria Mochly-Rosen, TEDMED Speaker and Director of the SPARK translational medicine program at Stanford University, on her tumultuous experience with turning a research discovery into a life-saving treatment for patients in need.

– Ethics Panel: Research on gene modification has brought us closer to editing the human genome, but many ethical questions arise. We ask experts from various departments pressing questions such as: Where do we draw the line for what we can change? Who will be able to afford a better quality of life? And more.


– Speaker Sessions: Learn from translational researchers who are pushing the boundaries of healthcare: Dr. Lydia Sohn of UC Berkeley – The revolutionary Node-Pore Sensing technique for stem cells; Dr. Jesse Jokerst of UC San Diego – Novel methods for molecular imaging; Dr. John C. Doyle – Mathematical foundations of machine learning

– Center for the Future of Surgery Tours: Tour the medical simulation training facility that aims to revolutionize the field of surgery and inspire future and practicing clinicians.


– Industry Demonstrations: Envision a career in industry through hands-on interactions in a science-fair style with products from CELLINK, Nanome, and more.


– MD-PhD and Graduate Admissions Panel: Have questions about the difference between a Masters, PhD, and MDPhD? Wondering how to get into graduate school in the first place? Receive answers to these questions and more from the representatives of graduate programs in UC Irvine, Keck Graduate Institute, and UC San Diego.


– Translational Researcher Networking Session: The perfect avenue for one-on-one conversations with top UCSD researchers and recent UCSD MSTP graduates: learn about their work, experiences, and how to get involved in the sprawling research community.


– Networking Reception: Enjoy hors d’oeuvres catered by Cafe Athena!


Dress code: Business casual


We hope to see you at TMD 2019! Remember to register at and please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
