UCSD – ISMD Program


PAID Research Training for Students

Would you be interested in participating in a research training program that pays you $14.00, allows you to work flexible hours, gain experience, and provides you with the opportunity to join one of UCSD’s many research labs?

Apply to the IMSD Basic Methodology Training Lab (BMTL). This is an amazing opportunity to:

  • Learn firsthand lab techniques and what it takes to become a scientist
  • Gain lab experience while doing biomedical research at the PhD level (as a FRESHMAN!)
  • Work with world renown faculty mentors
  • Build up your resume and curriculum vitae
  • Get started on a path towards a PhD (the earlier you get started on preparing for graduate school, the better)
  • Help getting into PhD programs across the country

After you complete the training, you will be given the opportunity to join the second Phase of the IMSD program and get paid to conduct research!!!!

MedHacks 2018

MedHacks Campus Poster - Standard.png


At MedHacks, we select the top innovative technologists, scientists, healthcare professionals, and engineers to build amazing things together. Hackers across all disciplines, undergraduate and graduate, unite to meet with experts in every part of the medical field here at Johns Hopkins to develop their solutions to healthcare problems across the globe.

For a full 36 hours, these individuals work towards this common goal, developing projects ranging from Parkinson’s telemonitoring, mental health apps, and patient safety/care. Last year we had over 700 participants with sponsors like CVS Health, BlueCross BlueShield, and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine supporting the event. For our fourth hackathon, MedHacks 2018 (Sept 7-9), we are looking to expand the event even further to give more people the space to disrupt healthcare and create the necessary solutions for today’s problems.

Want to be part of this ground-breaking event and help advance medical innovation? Sign up for MedHacks 2018 today – learn more at Apply before July 20th for opportunity for travel reimbursement!

Grad Student Research Panel

Hi everyone,

ChemPAL invites you to its Grad Student Research Panel next Tues 6/5 at 5:30-7pm in NSB Auditorium!

At the event, you will hear short talks from grad students about their research and how/why they decided to pursue it and grad school. You will also have time to ask your own questions about research, grad school, and more!

This is a great chance to see what research entails, check out some of the many areas of chemistry research, and learn how to get started. It is also an excellent opportunity if you are already involved in undergrad research and considering grad school.

Email and check out our website ( if you have any questions or want additional information!
