Brotein mentor applications and mentee registration for the 2017-2018 academic year are now open!  

If you are an incoming second year biochemistry student, fill out this Brotein Mentee Application to be matched with an upper year mentor to provide you with handy tips and tricks for navigating biochemistry.

If you are an upper-year biochemistry student who is dedicated and enthusiastic, fill out this Brotein Mentor Application to help integrate our newest members to the biochem family!

Please contact your VP Broteins if you have any questions regarding the application process. 




  1. A mixture between a “Bro” (a friend) and a “Protein” (a class of nitrogenous organic compounds)

  2. A wise and trusted upper year student, experienced in Biochemistry

    • "She needed a Brotein to show her the world of Biochemistry."

    • “You should volunteer as a Brotein!”

The Brotein Mentorship Program is here to help guide incoming second year students through the remarkable and rough parts of our program, in order to help students transition more smoothly into our family. This program will act as the ligase that matches a Brotein Mentee to a Brotein Mentor like the sticky ends of recombinant DNA. By pairing upper year mentors with second year mentees to create Brotein dimers (1 mentor to 1 mentee) and Brotein aggregates (1 mentor to several mentees), we hope to give biochemistry students a network to share their experiences and to provide academic/extracurricular help to one another. Most importantly, we hope that the connections made through the Brotein program provides everyone with lasting bonds!

Thank you!

Keep calm and peptide bond,

Justyna Zukowski & Timothy Doyle
