BCB GSA Officers 2013 - 2014

The BCB GSA hosts a graduate student led journal club every other Thursday. All BCB graduate students are invited to attend and participate. Lunch is served for all attendees.

In addition, the BCB GSA hosts monthly events to blow off some steam and relax after long hours in the lab. These events include sports nights, movie nights, and volunteer opportunities in the Houston area.

All meeting dates are posted on the BCB Graduate Student Google Calendar at the beginning of each semester. If you would like to present at the journal club, have a great idea for a monthly event, or would like to be more involved with the BCB GSA, please contact Brian Engel or Kim Gonzalez.
