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.

This year, the BioMedical Engineering Society chapter at UC Riverside returns with BioHack, the second annual student-run 12-hour health and medicine themed hackathon at the University of California, Riverside! Our mission is to cultivate the next generation of biohackers and healthcare advocates to help meet the patient care needs of today with the technology of tomorrow!

This FREE science competition is all inclusive, i.e. all three meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner), snacks, parking, engineering supplies, access to laboratories on campus, and more! 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. Bridging the disciplines of computer and biomedical sciences, BioHack paves the new yellow brick road for the next generation of biohackers and healthcare advocates to heal the future.
