About the Biomedical Postdoctoral Council & Newsletter
The Biomedical Postdoctoral Council
The Biomedical Postdoctoral Council (BPC) consists of postdoctoral fellows from the School of Medicine, the School of Veterinary Science, the School of Dental Medicine, the School of Nursing, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute, and the Monell Chemical Senses Center. The BPC seeks to foster a sense of community, provide resources for career and personal development, and provide a framework for representation on campus and in the local community for postdoctoral scholars. You can learn more on the BPC Homepage.
The Biomedical Postdoctoral Council Newsletter Mission
The BPC Newsletter covers both Penn BPC events and broader issues relevant to postdocs in the biosciences. Our writers come from a variety of fields, and write on topics including scientific research, science policy, career issues, and lifestyle. We provide a flexible platform for biomed postdocs to get involved in scientific writing. Whether you have experience in science writing, or would like to develop new skills in this area, the BPC Newsletter provides opportunities to build and refine your abilities in science writing.
BPC Newsletter Ongoing activities
The BPC Newsletter is published quarterly.
