Biochem Club

The UMass Biochemistry Club is a Registered Student Organization (RSO) that is dedicated to providing opportunities to undergraduate students of any major to explore a career in the Life Sciences field. The Club frequently holds peer mentoring events on topics like getting into a research lab and finding an industry internship. They also host guest speakers from biotech and pharmaceutical industries who come to campus to explain how they have made their careers in the life science field. Once each semester the UMass Biochem Club goes on an industrial lab tour, which allows students to see firsthand the types of jobs that will be available to them after graduation from UMass.
