News & Highlights

Multi-tasking Wearable Continuously Monitors Glucose, Alcohol, and Lactate

Learn more about the device created by researchers at the UC San Diego Center for Wearable Sensors in the May 9th edition of Nature Biomedical Engineering.

High School Student STEM Summer Internship Opportunity

The IEM OPALS high school internship program aims to provide pre-college students with hands-on experience in STEM by spending 20 hours per week for six weeks at UC San Diego in a research laboratory environment. Each intern will have the opportunity to interact with researchers, graduate, and undergraduate students engaged in research at the interfaces of engineering and medical science, such as engineering for cancer diagnosis and therapy, biophotonics research, and cardiovascular imaging. Interns will learn the scientific background to the research, observe or assist UC San Diego researchers and students in performing experiments, learn to analyze experimental data and present a research talk or poster at the end of the internship.

Upcoming Events & Webinars

The Interstellar Initiative: Applications due May 24, 2022 (EDT)

The Interstellar Initiative ― presented jointly by the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development and the New York Academy of Sciences ― recognizes the world's most promising Early Career Investigators and connects them with peers to develop international, multi-disciplinary research projects addressing a major research question. The aim is to foster collaboration between disciplines and thereby catalyze unique discoveries.

The 2022-2023 Interstellar Initiative will address challenges in the area of Basic Research to elucidate the complex mechanisms of living organisms for the benefit of all humankind. Research topics may include biological functions at all levels of analysis: for example, studies on genes and individual molecules, intracellular networks, intercellular associations in tissues and organs, and networks underlying the complex functions of entire organisms.

Participation in this two-part workshop is by application only. Applications are invited from Early Career Investigators who have backgrounds in four broad categories: 1) Biomedical Sciences; 2) Life Sciences; 3) Physical/Natural Sciences, and 4) Biotechnology/Analytical technology. The deadline for application submission is May 24, 2022 (EDT).
