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

The IMSD program at Rutgers 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.

The Rutgers IMSD program is funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institute of Health: Grant #R25 GM055145.
