    Mission Statement

    Our organization brings together students within the Biochemistry, Cellular, and Molecular Biology (BCMB) Graduate Program for socializing, professional development, and community service activities. Graduate school can be an extremely stressful time, and by building a strong community of students within the program and organizing events for students to get together and share experiences, we provide students with a way to surmount those difficulties. In addition to social aspects, we provide space for graduate students to practice skills such as poster presentations, journal club presentations, Oral Qualifying Exams, etc. We also offer events where students can give back to the community and serve Galveston as a whole, celebrating and serving the place supporting during this critical phase of our academic careers.


    Activities

    • Hosting Donation Drives
    • Tabling Booths at Events
    • Hosting Guest Speaker Events
    • Attending Guest Speaker Events
    • Hosting Presentation Practice Sessions
    • Volunteering

    Hosting Donation Drives/Volunteering: Participating in and hosting toys/food/etc. Drives on campus allow us to give back to the community, supporting us during our graduate careers. In addition, in a field filled with stress, it is easy to lose perspective, and by refocusing our efforts to help those in need, we can better regain our perspective and see our struggles from a more global aspect.

    Tabling Booths at events: This is a chance to raise our awareness and profile to the rest of the UTMB community. As a part of a health professional's school, we are often overlooked or poorly understood by the rest of the UTMB community. These outlets allow us to share our stories and experiences with the greater UTMB campus and form professional and social connections with other programs.

    Hosting/Attending Guest Speaker Events: As Principal Investigators, our careers will involve planning and hosting guest speaker events, and yet as students, we have no opportunities to develop these skills. The Pioneering Biological Discovery Series allows our members to put together a full student-organized seminar and interact with some of the biggest names in our respective fields. Hosting and interacting with these speakers less formally and in an all-student event is a significant first step to building networks and connections that can aid us in the next stages of our future careers. These relationships often foster collaborations and are a chance to meet potential External Dissertation Committee members.

    Hosting Presentation and Practice Sessions: A significant aspect of our careers as researchers is presenting our projects and data, and yet there are few opportunities to hone his skill. A substantial part of BCSO is hosting student practice sections for the Oral Qualifications Exams. This allows students to practice the timing and pacing of their presentations and learn how to deal with people interrupting and asking questions about their projects. Often the mentors who will sit on these Exams have students who attend the practices and, as a result, have a good appreciation for the types of things and questions their mentor may ask. We also host and organize events for students to practice poster presentations in a less formal setting. For many, this is the first time presenting a poster, and without these practices, they would have no idea what to expect at their first conference presentations.
