About Us

The Penn Undergraduate Biotech Society, or PUBS for short, is a group of undergraduates interested in biotech, the healthcare industry, biology, and finance. To capture these diverse interests, we have broken ourselves into a number of committees: Consulting, Finance, Research, and Marketing & Internal. Every semester, we seek to give a number of talks, host a series of various guest lectures, and work with a biotech start-up for consulting. All of our talks, meetings, and consulting services are free, open and pro-bono. We believe in spreading knowledge and excitement about the industry above all else, and we hope that our resources lead to increased awareness about this growing field.
