About Us

Our mission 

The University of Chicago Biotechnology Association’s mission is to provide career education and skill development opportunities to University of Chicago graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.

UCBA has three primary goals:

1) Academic and non-academic career education related to biotechnology.
2) Networking for career advancement in biotechnology-related fields.
3) Development of students’ professional skills through opportunities in “real world” biotechnology projects and experiences.
