BMB-GSA | Department of Biochemistry

The UBC Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Graduate Student Association (BMB-GSA) represents the voice of graduate students in the Biochemistry Department at UBC. Our main goal is to foster a strong sense of community among graduate students in our department in order to establish an engaging learning and working environment. To this end, we organize a number of social, recreational and academic events all through the year.

All BMB graduate students are encouraged to attend the BMB-GSA monthly meetings. These meetings are designed to plan, delegate and organize the work for upcoming events. If you would like to participate and become more involved with the BMB-GSA or would like more information about upcoming events please contact any members of the committee via e-mail or through the BMB-GSA Facebook page.
