What is BioHack?
BioHack is a 24-hour health and medicine-themed hackathon hosted by the University of California, Riverside.
Our mission is to cultivate the next generation of BioHackers and healthcare advocates and meet the patient care needs of today with the technology of tomorrow.
As a beginner-friendly and multidisciplinary hackathon, BioHack aims to give students the opportunity to create innovative and personalized solutions and save lives with their projects. During BioHack, students will get the opportunity to form teams and collaborate, attend workshops to learn about new technologies, and network with industry partners.
A hackathon is a weekend-long event that invites curious minds to learn and build something new. You may pick up a project of your choosing to work on during the event, to dive into a topic you've been meaning to explore. You also get to meet new friends as you work in a team of up to 4 members!
This event is open to all undergraduate students! You do not need any prior skills or qualifications to attend.
No! Biohack encourages any and all students who are curious about coding and health to participate in our workshops and create a project. We also host beginner friendly workshops where participants can learn new skills that they can utilize in their project submissions.
Priority registration will open soon. Please keep an eye out on our social media platforms to hear the announcement. Once applications are open, you will be able to register through this website.
