Hello, Bioengineering undergraduates, graduates, and post-docs! 

Gender Minorities in Bioengineering (GMBE) is excited to announce that we will be hosting our third annual Networking Night on Thursday, February 29th from 5-8 pm. We hope to bring together over 100 Bio-E students, faculty members, and industry professionals who identify as women or other marginalized genders to expand their professional networks. Whether you are an undergraduate, graduate, or post-doc, this event will be an amazing opportunity to meet other individuals in your field of interest! 

Our Networking Night gives you the opportunity to find an academic/industry mentor, connect with Bioengineering companies in the local San Diego area, and build personal relationships with our attendees. We will be welcoming Dr. Dana Pizzuti as our Keynote speaker for the event!

The event will be at the Atkinson Hall Courtyard at UCSD. Dinner will be provided! Please RSVP and reserve a ticket for “Student/postdoc” by February 15th. Space is limited!

We look forward to seeing you all there!

Please register here, and the attached flyers can be found below.

Please note this event is for those who identify as women or another gender minority in bioengineering/biotechnology.

Start this year right with new credentials in the field of sustainability: the LEED Green Associate! Spearheaded by the US Green Building Council, LEED accreditation tells employers about your knowledge and commitment in the field. While LEED itself is a scorecard for Green Buildings, people can also become LEED accredited highlighting their expertise about what it takes to work and build sustainably.

Our training workshops have assisted over 12,000 students and professionals learn and think critically about the material with an impressive passing rate. Given that the exam doesn’t have a high pass rate on its own, enrolling in our course provides the optimal path to secure your designation.
