Advanced Biosciences Initiative
With a $250,000 grant from the W.F. Keck Foundation, we launched the Advanced Biosciences Initiative (ABI) in 2011. The overarching goals of the ABI are to significantly advance SCU's undergraduate bioscience and bioengineering programs and provide workshops for middle and high school teachers through the Santa Clara County Biotechnology Education Partnership (SCCBEP) and the Bay Area Biotech Education Consortium (BABEC). ABI will involve faculty workshops on advanced instrumentation, curriculum projects, interdisciplinary research grants, an annual Biosciences Symposium, SCCBEP workshops and other Silicon Valley bioscience partnerships.
In collaboration with the National Biotechnology Education Conference,the Advanced Biosciences Initiative is hosting the Second Annual Advanced Biosciences Symposium at Santa Clara University on January17-18, 2014. The overall focus of the symposium is on bioimaging. Faculty, industry partners, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students are encouraged to submit abstracts for oral presentations. Undergraduates, teachers, high school students and others are encouraged to present posters.
Register online, and/or submit an abstract, by the January 15, 2014 deadline.
