The Biomedical Postdoctoral Council consists of postdoctoral volunteers from the School of Medicine, the School of Veterinary Science, the School of Dental Medicine, the School of Nursing, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute, and the Monell Chemical Senses Center. The BPC seeks to foster a sense of community, provide resources for career and personal development, and provide a framework for representation on campus and in the local community for postdoctoral scholars. We also function as a liaison between the postdoctoral community and the Office of Biomedical Postdoctoral Programs (BPP).
