Calling fellow UW students in or interested in the field of biomedical research!
We want to create a forum to connect people across departments with opportunities relevant to the mission of supporting underrepresented minorities in the biomedical field with an emphasis on research, networking, and community. To achieve this goal, we are creating a UW Registered Student Organization (RSO) geared towards supporting individuals of diverse racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic status, and all allies. We aim to provide the necessary tools for undergraduate, graduate, and postdoc trainees in their future endeavors. We envision mentorship, workshops, career fairs, and monthly networking, both academia and industry focused, across student levels and by faculty. Additionally, through a newsletter, we hope to work with existing organizations to compile relevant opportunities in a central and accessible location. We recognize the interdisciplinary nature of biomedical research and call upon interested individuals across all relevant departments to join us.
In an effort to define and tailor the goals of the organization and serve the needs of members, we invite you to our first general meeting on March 6th, at 5:30pm in MolES room 215. In this meeting, we will vote on an organization name, so come with suggestions!
Please feel free to reach out to us if you have questions. We look forward to your feedback and ideas!
