Initiative for Maximizing Student Development

Presentation Schedule: Student Research Showcase – April 5, 2018

The IMSD at Georgia State University is an undergraduate research education and training program grounded in Biology, Chemistry, Neuroscience, and Psychology. Funded through a 5-year institutional award from the National Institutes of Health, the goal of the IMSD program is to encourage students from underrepresented groups to pursue careers in biomedical research, starting with completion of Ph.D. degrees in related fields. The IMSD program offers an opportunity to develop new or expand existing academic development programs, including student research assistantships, in order to prepare students for competitive research careers and leadership positions in the biomedical sciences.

At Georgia State, we are well positioned to host a successful IMSD program, given our unique combination of an amazingly diverse and multicultural undergraduate student population, with a research-intensive academic environment bringing in almost $150 million this year in external funding. Georgia State already has unprecedented success rates in graduating students from underrepresented groups, particularly in the sciences, and the IMSD will further enhance our endeavors in this arena.
