Welcome to the official website of the Penn Biomedical Science Policy Group (PSPG)! We are a graduate student group affiliated with the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
We organize events intended to facilitate discussion and learning of issues at the intersection of Science and Public Policy. Additionally, we host seminars for exploring career paths in science policy.
Graduate students, professional students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty are all welcome to our events!
To unionize or not to unionize -- that is the question!Check out the latest on our blog — two complementary podcasts by Ian McLaughlin. He interviews two groups of students, one that supports and one that opposes the current grad student unionization efforts at UPenn.
