Support the Biology Students of TriBeta
What is the TriBeta?
Beta Beta Beta (TriBeta) is an honor society for biology students, particularly undergraduates, dedicated to improving the understanding and appreciation of biological study and extending boundaries of human knowledge through scientific research.
Why is TriBeta Important at Duquesne University?
The Duquesne University Xi Psi Chapter of TriBeta enables students to explore their own biological interests through student-planned field trips, guest speakers, and projects, among other student interests. It has grown from a chapter of 20 members in 2014 to 150 in 2017, and continues to grow more.
What Will Your Donation Benefit?
In addition to help offset the costs of activities such as field trips and bringing guest speakers to campus, your donation will help support two important events: symposiums and conferences. These are vital events that grant Duquesne University students networking opportunities, new tools, and the energy of like-minded individuals.
The Duquesne University chapter of Tribeta is hosting a local BBB conference and symposium. This conference allows local Pittsburgh TriBeta chapters to come together and present and discuss their work. Academic conferences provide an important channel for exchange of information between young undergraduate researchers.
Why Do We Need Your Support?
Science is the engine of prosperity. The cars and buses that got us here today, our smart phones, the energy that lights our houses, the clothes we wear, the food we eat: all of these were developed and improved through research. But before these applications existed, researchers had to study the basic concepts that provided a sound foundation and they did those studies not necessarily knowing where they would lead.
To continue advocating for such a important cause, TriBeta needs your help to create events that provide education and appreciation for science.
