About the event:

The CCSF Bioscience Undergraduate Research, Career Exploration and Networking Symposium is a way for our students to learn the importance of showcasing their internship research experience to scientists. The event is run by CCSF Biotechnology students, and features work from our Bioscience Interns who have worked for at least 180 hours in a lab this semester.

There are numerous opportunities for scientists to get involved in students’ learning and training. Our program exemplifies the deep impact that scientists can have in students’ lives, by teaching and mentoring students in the classroom and in laboratories. 

Mock interviews and panel discussions focus on improving career prospects for our graduates.

If you work in the research laboratories or biotech companies, whether you are a student, technician, administrator, recruiter, we would be delighted to meet you.

Please spread the word!
