IMI Graduate Student Committee (IMI GSC)

IMI Grad Student Committee


The IMI Graduate Student Committee (IMI GSC) is comprised of representatives from 6 IMI programs: MMPA, MMI, MBiotech, MScSM, MUI, and MScBMC*.

As a student led group, the aim of IMI GSC is to create an interdepartmental community where graudate students from all corners of science, business and technology can build connections and broaden their networking circles. Individual programs at IMI do an excellent job at giving their students an exposure to the workforce, through alumni events, internships, and interactive class projects etc. The GSC enhances these program strengths, and is committed to furthering the student experience by offering cross disciplinary interactions and conversations..

Our goal is to give students an opportunity to broaden their networking circles and build contacts with current and future IMI graduate students.
