  • Promoting students’ professional and scientific development
  • Facilitating communication between the graduate students and the faculty
  • Increasing interaction among graduate students
  • Providing an organization to represent the interests of the graduate students

The group, which meets monthly during the academic year, has organized activities to welcome new graduate students to the department, and is currently planning to hold yearly research and professional development symposiums.

  • Provide a forum for students to learn from each other’s experiences in co-ops, internships and job experiences
  • Foster interactions between the students themselves and with the biotech industry
  • Encourage interdisciplinary participation in biotechnology seminars and symposiums
