What is GABS?

The Graduate Association of Biological Sciences (GABS) is a Graduate Student Organization (GSO) that promotes research and career advancement for training biologists at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). Our goals are to:

  • Provide a symposium for graduate students to share their work
  • Award travel grants for professional conferences
  • Address the concerns and issues of graduate students within the department

This group is open to all graduate students within the Department of Biological Sciences at UMBC.


Monthly Meetings

GABS is switching it up this year! We will be scheduling fun meetings each month for everyone to attend so be sure to check your UMBC email for details each month 🙂
