New Student-led Organization in Biotechnology

The Biotech Association is a new student-led organization of Santa Monica College focused on the field of biotechnology and areas of innovative technology used for biological systems and products. Our goal is to provide information and resources for students interested in this growing industry with biotech leaders and partners, internship opportunities, volunteer work, laboratory skills workshops, and more.  Our mission is to support students of SMC in pursuing their career in biotechnology and bring guidance that will help them in their journey.
