Career Tour-Exploring Biosciences in Eugene

Friday, January 26 at 9:00am to 12:30pm

Matthew Knight Arena, meet outside box office near Duck statue
1840 E 13th Ave Eugene, OR

Want to see what it's like to work in a state-of-the-art laboratory, do scientific research, or even scientific communication AND explore Eugene all at the same time?!  Have we got a Friday morning for you!

Students will have the opportunity to tour local bioscience companies that are excited to introduce you to careers (and internships!) and the growing Oregon industry.  Representatives from Oregon Bio Women's Committee (OBW) will be on the tour and ready to share resources & connections. 


Winter 2024 Tour Stops: 

  • Abcam (Biotechnology Research-Conjugation Technology)
  • InVivo Biosystems (Biotechnology Research-Gene Editing & CRO Services) 
  • Actylis (R&D, GMP & Non-GMP Manufacturing). 

Event is FREE to ALL STUDENTS, bring a friend! Register on Handshake to get more information in the coming weeks and see what it's all about before you commit!


What do we mean by "Biosciences" ?

It's a big term that includes LOTS of cool fields! Biotech, med tech and digital health just to name a few! People with a mission to cure patients, protect our climate and feed the world. The local bio-industry is growing and also needs accountants, sales people, and operations managers. For any student wishing to make a positive impact on the world, please attend.


Open to all students with an interest in learning more about local business and careers in bioscience, scientific communication, and other related majors. This is a great way to explore your future and practice having networking conversations with industry leaders before you interview for related jobs in the future! We especially encourage female-identifying students to attend and learn more about how the Oregon Bio Women's Committee supports women in bioscience.


Open to faculty, staff, advisors as well, email to learn more about how your participation can support students' career readiness!


Meet the bus that will pick up students in front of Matt Knight Arena Box Office at 9am and take you around Eugene to three stops all focused on the Biosciences.  While at the stops, you'll get an opportunity to tour facilities as well as meet with leaders in the field. The bus will then return to Matt Knight Arena no later than 12:30pm to drop everyone off. 


Sponsored by University Career Center and Collaborative Economic Development Oregon as part of the 2024 UO Career Readiness Week January 26-February 2,
