We are inviting over 100 innovators of all skill levels to come make the next technological advancement in the biomedical field.
Innovators will be supported for 12 hours in pursuit of their projects
Come together with other undergraduate students with computing, health, and other unique backgrounds to create projects that may solve some of the most fundamental challenges in human health and medicine.
A hackathon is an multi-day event where students practice and develop their computer programming skills to create ideas and projects. This year, a collaboration with the Society of Women Engineers and Biomedical Engineering Society introduces BioHack, the very first student-run 12 hour bioengineering-themed hackathon at the University of California, Riverside. Throughout this 12-hour hackathon, students will form teams to work on projects, attend technical workshops, speak to mentors, learn about new technologies, and network with industries.
Our mission is to foster connections among students and sponsors throughout computer science and bioengineering. We encourage non-computer science or engineering students to develop valuable technical and teamwork skills in a safe and encouraging environment. Also, hosting BioHack in the Inland Empire will spawn connections with engineers throughout the bioengineering community across California. UCR students who are curious are welcome to join; no experience necessary!
BioHack focuses on an event where students can create medically innovative projects and technologies with the freedom of their creativity. Unlike other hackathons, we promote bioengineering related projects as the central aspect of the event.
