Biomedical & Bioscience Industry Expo (BBIE)

Please join us for our Biomedical & Bioscience Industry Expo (BBIE) each spring. This annual event was originally developed by the student group Stanford Biosciences Students Association (SBSA) and is currently hosted by BioSci Careers. More than just a career fair, the event allows students to develop relationships with a core group of companies and professionals from various sectors. BBIE is also a formal channel for learning about job opportunities and company culture, it showcases current research and trends, and it stimulates the exchange of scientific ideas and dialogue between employers and Stanford students, alumni, and faculty.

 

Event highlights include:

  • Keynote speaker by an organization/company sponsor on the latest trends in Biomedical and Biosciences technology
  • Connections to organizations in at least 9 different sectors
  • On site career coaching
  • Coffee cart for casual networking with alumni, company representatives and peers
  • Convenient, open floor for easy access to companies and organizations

 

A diverse representation of companies and organizations from a diverse range of sectors in the research, communications, and business fields.

Participation in BBIE is free for all Stanford trainees and alumni. (Trainees include undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, medical students, and residents.) Trainees may register prior to the event or at the door. SU ID required.
