Do you remember going to a conference in the field you were studying before COVID? Do you remember the excitement of meeting the people you wanted to do? Do you remember listening to conversations and being not only slightly excited by the topic, but also amazed by the amount and complexity of information presented? Skyline College students did just that on Saturday, October 8, 2022, when they participated in their first “Science Symposium.” For the past 7 years, Skyline College faculty have worked with the Chinese Biological Association (CBA) Conference to provide Skyline College students with little or no attendance. The conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza in Foster City. The Chinese Biology Association (CBA) is a non-profit organization founded in 1997 in the San Francisco Bay Area. Its mission is to facilitate education, networking and community building for science professionals. This year’s conference was devoted to the topic “Next generation medicine: from genes, proteins to cell therapy”. The conference was a great opportunity for students to learn about new technologies and innovations that are key to transitioning from student to biotech worker.
During a break in the debate, student Grace Sue took a selfie with Dr. Greg Semenza, winner of the 2019 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, after listening to his excellent speech on the mechanisms by which cells adapt to the presence of oxygen. . Dr. Semenza noted how well you usually communicate when you win a Nobel Prize. He was very kind and posed with many Skyline College students.

The trip was attended by 14 students and began with a BART trip to the Ferry Building Market. Students enjoyed the beautiful ocean view of the Bay Bridge before boarding the ferry to Sausalito. As they boarded the ferry, students and staff were greeted by a cool sea breeze as they made their way across the bay to Sausalito. The students walked the beach and explored the area before returning to San Francisco.
The trip enjoyed good weather and allowed the international students to experience the surrounding community together. Claire Yeo-Sugaiski, executive program manager of the ISP, stated, “We were fortunate enough to have good weather and participation on the Sausalito field trip.”
Our next ISP event will be a visit to UC Berkeley on Monday, October 24, 2022. The International Student Program is part of Skyline College’s Global Learning and Service Programs department.
