Welcome to the powerhouse of the Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences Society: BBSS Athletics (a higher priority than the mitochondria!). Our athletics program aims to engage Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences students of all ages in a variety of sports and healthy activities to increase endogenous endorphin levels and maintain homeostasis.
For the 2016-2017 academic year, we plan on organizing a biochemistry-exclusive outdoor soccer team for the fall intramural session, as well a volleyball team for the winter (update: sign up for volleyball here!). Teams are co-ed and we encourage everyone to sign-up because pipetting accuracy and data analysis skills directly translate to soccer techniques and volleyball plays. You'll also want to join this Facebook group to keep up with details about when our games are.
Additionally, this year we look forward to hosting our very first Biochem Olympics! Events such as ‘Epitope Football’ and ‘Find Your Secondary Antibody’ will be featured, so look out for updates in the future.
Thank you kindly,
Kenneth Rachwalski and Dempsey Wood
