The Bioengineering and Bioscience Unified Graduate Students, better known as BBUGS, are holding their annual Fall Recruiting Carnival seeking grad students who are looking for ways to get involved in the GT biotech community. Come and talk to the committee chairs, hang with other grad students, and sign up for one (or more!) of the many awesome committees below!


EDUCATION & OUTREACH - Host visitors from local schools and organizations, coordinate educational events such as Buzz on Biotechnology. This is a super-fun, capstone Petit Institute event that requires lots of hands, so sign up to help with hands-on science demos, lab tours, and seminars for eager/curious high school scientists!
COMMUNICATIONS - The communications committee is responsible for disseminating information about upcoming BBUGS events via the website, Mailchimp, and maintaining the mailing list. 
INDUSTRY - Collaborate with established professionals to host events such as workshops and site-visits to prepare graduate students for a career in industry.
POLICY - Engaging and increasing the policy interests of graduate students, particularly in areas related to biomedical and bioengineering research, such as public health, healthcare access and regulation of medical devices and therapeutics.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT - Seminars and panel presentations to guide individuals at different stages of their careers with topics ranging from advisor selection to interviewing and negotiating job offers.
RESEARCH - Help chairs organize events pertaining to research on campus, networking with clinicians and exposure to the impacts that research brings to hospitals and businesses.
SOCIAL - Events to build community amongst bioengineering and bioscience graduate students through social events (football tailgates, etc.)
SERVICE - Help with various community service activities throughout the year such as informational sessions on the GT Ideas to Serve Competition and volunteering with local groups such as MedShare.
...something for EVERYONE!
