Where We Started

Despite a large Taiwanese population working in biology-related fields in Texas, there is a lack of a professional organization. To address this need, we established the Texas Taiwanese Biotechnology Association (TTBA), a non-profit organization, in 2014. 

Through TTBA, we seek to unite Texas Taiwanese working in biology-related fields, including students, postdocs and professionals in both academia and industry. We aim to develop an organization that can serve and represent the Texas Taiwanese biotechnology community, build new connections, and share scientific advances and career opportunities. In addition, we strive to build a network that will connect established successful professionals with early career professionals in order to foster exchange of ideas and practical experience. We further hope to promote new collaborations by bridging the gaps within academic fields and between academia and industry, and contribute to enterprise development.

德州有豐富的醫療資源,例如休士頓、達拉斯頂尖的醫療中心;奧斯丁的醫學院也預計自2016年開始招生。但長期以來,台灣人的專業社群一直是以工程領域為主,儘管生物相關人員不在少數,卻不容易相互激勵、茁壯。

我們希望透過德州台灣生物科技協會(TTBA),團結德州生物領域台灣學生、博士後研究員與專業人士。分享彼此的資訊:科學新知,就業資訊,人際網絡。透過我們,年輕科學家與成功台灣前輩們得以相互交流、傳承經驗、提拔後進;更進一步的,希望能夠促成實質的合作機會:學術圈內的科學合作、學術與業界的橋接與新創公司的成立。
