Micro Club

Students in the Micro Club.

Graduate students in the Micro Club learn from each other and take on leadership roles. They help plan professional development activities and support their peers.

Outside of classrooms and labs, you will have many opportunities to engage in leadership, informal learning and networking.

As soon as you join our department, you are welcome to participate in our Micro Club. We hope you take advantage of this supportive, student-led forum to learn and lead. You can discuss science in casual settings and spend time with others who share your interests.

We sponsor various activities, including:

  • Data Club (monthly)
  • qualifying exam practice sessions
  • summer department picnic
  • joint activities with clubs from other biomedical science departments
  • social events

You will have a vote in electing new club officers each academic year.

Graduate Student Association

At the university level, you also can participate in numerous events — both on- and off-campus — sponsored by UB’s Graduate Student Association (GSA). You may also have opportunities to represent our department at GSA Senate meetings. You will keep your peers informed about issues affecting all UB graduate students.

Graduate Affairs Committee

We also elect students to serve on our Graduate Affairs Committee. As a student leader on this committee, you will play a key role in communicating with faculty about issues concerning your peers and our program.
