Beta Beta Beta (TriBeta) Biological Honor Society

      The Beta B​eta Beta (TriBeta) Biological Honor Society is a national honor society for students interested in biology. The society focuses on undergraduate research and provides opportunities for students interested in research to both participate in research and present their work. The society's objectives are:

  • to promote undergraduate research in the biological sciences

  • to promote the dissemination of biological knowledge

  • to promote scholarship in the biological sciences

The society was founded in 1922 and has over 175,000 members and 430 chapters nationwide. In addition to publishing the BIOS journal which focuses on student research, the society sponsors annual regional and national scientific meetings. A benefit to TriBeta student members is eligibility to apply for research grants from the national office.


The CU Denver Chapter of the Tribeta Biological Honors Society will be attending our annual Western District Conference at the University of Northern Colorado on Friday evening April 17th and Saturday April 18th. We would like to invite all current undergraduate researchers to participate. The conference is a great opportunity to present your research at a District conference. The past few years CU Denver has returned with awards for our presenters that have helped them to distinguish themselves in graduate school applications. 

You may also attend the conference without presenting to get an opportunity to see biological research being conducted by other undergraduates in the region. You do not need to be a current Tribeta member to participate. If you are planning to present at the Research and Creative Activities Symposium on April 17th this would be another opportunity to present the poster you have worked hard to create.  Western District Conference Author Data Sheet 2015 .pdfWestern District Conference Author Data Sheet 2015 .pdf
