A Uniquely Comprehensive Program

The Biotechnology Program at UC Davis was founded on a unique, unbounded principle that some of the most consequential scientific and technological advancements stem from collaborations between academic disciplines, industry partners, policy makers and mentors. This focus is the centerpiece of our program. It offers students, teachers and partners an immersive and broad experience to develop their expertise, cultivate partnerships and drive impact for a better future.

The program offers several opportunities:

Anchored to Strong Industry Partners

Since its inception, the Biotechnology Program has built and maintains a resilient network of industry and community stakeholders with an interest in supporting biotechnology education and outreach. With these partners, we share a long-term vision for enhancing education, innovation and entrepreneurial activity in the life science sector of the regional, national and global economies.
