What's Included

Hive Bio, co-founded by a 17-year old student in Seattle area, was built to inspire young people. A team of dedicated talented scientists promote self-directed learning, entrepreneurship and citizen scientists. Hive Bio operates a do-it-yourself DIY lab, located at the Talarius Center just east of University District with access to bus and ample parking. The lab is located in the West Side of Building G on the South Side of the campus. Surrounded by Koi Ponds, willow trees and offers a sense of serenity the perfect location to foster creativity. Our BIOmed Campers use Hive Bio lab facilities 3 hours daily, 4 days a week to experience sheep brain dissection, neuroscience and digital microscopy and apply scientific methods. Hive Bio creates an immersion in what it's like to be a professional scientist, have your own office (yes!) and inspires young scientists with the thrill of discovery. The Lab Fees for this program are higher than other programs, because the students create lab equipment that they take home. Each Friday morning this neuroscience track with Camp BIOmed is taught by Eric H. Chudler, PhD and is hosted by the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering, sharing a clinical academic perspective with tomorrow's researchers. This session offers an engineering sampler. Campers may learn about neurological disorders, and about the connection between neuro-impulses and action, harnessing the activation energy in their muscles to compete in the WrestleBrainia 3000, a robotic arm wrestling device controlled through EMG electrodes, or donning an Emotiv cap to control a computer icon using only their thoughts. Friday session location: Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering 1414 NE 42nd St., Suite 204 Seattle, WA 98105 Friday afternoon camp wraps up at Puget Sound Blood Research Institute in the large conference room, or our culminating expo, where students will share their lab journals, DIY lessons and equipment.

About This Organizer

The Northwest Association for Biomedical Research is a 501 c3 non-profit membership/educational organization established in 1989 to promote the public understanding of the implications and applications of biomedical research. Our work centers on supporting excellence in science teaching, building connections between scientists and students, and strengthening the research community. 

Vision: NWABR is the Northwest’s leading voice for understanding and integrity in biomedical research

NWABR Mission: Promotes the understanding of biomedical research and its ethical conduct

Mission advances the understanding and support of biomedical research by:

  • promoting awareness of the values, principles and ethical issues in biomedical research
  • empowering citizens and leaders to make informed choices about biomedical research
  • building community across the Northwest’s scientific and educational institutions
  • creating an environment where research flourishes
  • NWABR Camp BIOmed is inspired by the success of our former NIH SEPA funded Student Research Fellows program (https://www.nwabr.org/events-programs/student-events/student-research-fellows), our goal is to inspire students to consider a career in biomedicine, biotechnology or bioengineering through immersion in the biomedical research community.

    At NWABR our Camp BIOmed is a core education program as the educational experience provides the opportunity for NWABR and its carefully selected partners to inspire young people (grades 10-12) to formulate their understanding of biomedical research and its ethical conduct.
