IMSD Rutgers-New Brunswick Program


Good News!  We are proud to announce that the IMSD Rutgers-New Brunswick program is now funded as a T32 by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institute of Health: Grant # 1T32GM139804-01


The goal of the  Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD) Rutgers-New Brunswick program is to increase the number and diversity of PhD scientists working in a biomedical science-related profession.

The IMSD Rutgers-New Brunswick program provides financial support, mentorship, an interdisciplinary and exciting environment for scientific training and professional development, and a community that fosters the success of all trainees. Since 1996, we have supported the training of more than 100 PhD students. 

IMSD trainees and faculty are affiliated with 13 graduate programs housed in multiple Schools (RWJMS, SAS, SOP, SEBS, SOE), Institutes  (Cancer Institute of NJ and Child Health Institute of NJ) and Bioscience Departments across the Rutgers campuses in Piscataway and New Brunswick.
