Our Mission

 

Our aim is to address and eliminate the lack of space and community for biochemistry students at UEA

 

We want new students to come to UEA and find an environment made especially for their interest in biochemistry

 

Biochemistry at UEA is the key link between the schools of Biological Sciences and Chemistry - we want to take advantage of this relationship and provide Biochemists with equal opportunities in each department

 

Student life can be full of hardships, and more than anything we want to provide you with whatever support we can offer to make your situation easier

Our Upcoming Events

 

Mental Health Workshop

We know that a university workload can be daunting, and at many times, incredibly stressful, leading students to suffer from work-related anxiety.

This week in May is Mental Health Awareness Week, and to commemorate, we've teamed up with UEA Games Society and Student Support's Wellbeing Team to bring you a Mental Health Workshop focused on addressing academic stress.

The workshop will entail learning how to cope with work-related anxieties and what resources are available for UEA students to get the assistance they may need in addressing these issues.

Afterwards, we'll be unwinding and destressing with some fun games and entertainment, so please feel free to participate in this free event!

The event will be next Thursday, 19th May 2022 in Arts 2.05, from 4-6 pm. Hope to see you there!

 

 

 

John Innes Centre Tour

Have you ever wanted to see the inside of one of the UK's leading research labs?

Now is your chance to receive a tour around the John Innes Centre, an independent, international centre of excellence in plant science, genetics and microbiology. You will tour the site and have the chance to ask any about the institute! We will be shown around by a member of the communications department so this might also be an excellent opportunity for any budding science communicators.

To attend the tour, purchase your FREE ticket below and we'll meet you in front of NEWSCI on the 25th of May at 3:30 pm. Hope to see you there!

 

 

 

 

 

Biochemistry Ball

We have been working hard to bring you the first-ever UEA Biochemistry Ball. 

Held at the Assembly House, there will be a two-course meal, music and many opportunities to take fun photos... and all that for £35 per ticket!

We hope to see you all on the 19th of June, when all exams are over, so come along to celebrate!

 

More details will be released as we get closer to the event, with the £35 tickets part of our early-bird release~ the tickets won't be at this price again so get yours while they're available!
