The BIOCOM Institute fosters the next generation of STEM leaders who may potentially save lives through scientific discovery. We are perpetuating a new ethic of service where companies are leading as community builders and industry professionals are dedicating themselves as volunteers. We help schools and learning institutions infuse real world examples into curriculum in order to increase the number of under-represented individuals exposed to STEM careers. The BIOCOM Institute supports science education and creates pioneering opportunities for students, teachers, and scientists to work with the life science industry. The mission of the BIOCOM Institute is to serve as a bridge between learning institutions and life science companies to create comprehensive education initiatives that advance scientific literacy.
The Institute has been successful at partnering with key agencies, life science companies, and learning institutions to encourage systemic change through collaboration and outreach. These communities have come together to create innovative solutions for meeting local and state science education and workforce needs. The BIOCOM Institute helps to ensure a prosperous and productive future for the life science industry and empower change in our education system. . BIOCOM Institute Program Highlights .
