Mission Statement

The Ernest E. Just Biomedical Society endeavors to create an environment which fosters the professional development of biomedical graduate students from populations which are traditionally underrepresented in the biomedical sciences. Our purpose is to support the membership in the successful completion of their doctoral degree program at the University of Pennsylvania. In line with this purpose we intend to initiate programs to serve the general academic, social and professional needs of the biomedical community, with an emphasis on the retention of underrepresented PhD students.
