About the AB Club

In association with the Instrumentation Resource Facility, the Applied Biotech Club (ABC) aims to educate students on new and existing biotechnology both in the IRF and abroad while also creating a safe environment for researchers to network, collaborate, and share ideas for new research questions and biotechnological techniques.

What We Do

Every month, the ABC hosts a get together consisting of a different “B” and Biotech theme. This is a time for faculty, staff, and students to get together in a communal space for a sharing of ideas.

If you would like to know more about the ABC or be involved in these awesome events, please contact current President- Kasie Roark- at
