In 2004, three biology majors created Saltman Quarterly, a research journal designed to give undergraduates the opportunity to experience writing and reviewing peer-reviewed journal articles. 

In the spirit of the late Dr. Paul Saltman, who encouraged undergraduates to become TAs and independent laboratory researchers at a time when such involvement was uncommon, Saltman Quarterly’s founders created the research journal to celebrate undergraduate researchers’ achievements with the UCSD community. 

Over time, this dedication to Dr. Saltman has grown into a collaboration of many undergraduates, and their pursuit of education has triggered its evolution into the Saltman Quarterly Program.
