What is the Biomedical & Bioscience Industry Expo (BBIE)?

The Biomedical & Bioscience Industry Expo is an annual event that 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 stimulates the exchange of scientific ideas and dialogue between employers and Stanford students, alumni, and faculty.

Participation in BBIE is free for all Stanford trainees and alumni. Trainees include undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, medical students, and residents.
