BioHack is a 24-hour bioengineering focused, health and medicine themed, virtual hackathon at the University of California, Riverside.

Our mission is to inspire new hackers to collaborate with students and sponsors throughout computer science and bioengineering. We encourage students of any background and in any field of study to participate in our inclusive event. We also motivate our participants to foster strong, professional relationships with industrial and academic sponsors.

By hosting BioHack within the Inland Empire, our goal is to have sponsors and students foster connections with engineers throughout the bioengineering and computer science community across California.
