Galvanizing Engineering in Medicine INclusion Initiative (GEMINI)

Diversity Fellowship Program


The Institute of Engineering in Medicine (IEM) is committed to promoting inclusion and diversity. The GEMINI Diversity Supplement Program is motivated by IEM’s desire to be fully inclusive and supportive of all our faculty members and their trainees, and our commitment to the principle that the contributions of researchers from diverse backgrounds improves the quality and impact of interdisciplinary research and research training.  GEMINI Fellowships are intended to enhance the participation of under-represented groups and individuals who have had to overcome significant disadvantage; to promote and recognize mentorship and outreach; and to increase diversity and inclusion in research at the interfaces of engineering and health sciences at UC San Diego.

There will be one annual fellowship of $15,000 for supplemental stipend support of a pre-doctoral or post-doctoral researcher working at the interfaces of engineering and health sciences.
