Who is the School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences Student Society? 

A team of high-achieving students, with different majors in bioscience. We hope to promote a sense of community within the School of BABS, as well as the Faculty of Science in general. 

Our aim is to offer the opportunity to develop and expand close professional networks for students and alumni. These opportunities are explored through shared interests and a passion for research and development, entrepreneurship, innovation, and the commercialisation of science, while also bringing the community together through social events.
