What We Do

Open to all JCC students, the Deranged Nerd Alliance (otherwise known as the DNA Club) is for those who have a burning passion for all things science, and especially for biotechnology. We attend nationally and internationally recognized scientific conferences each year and get to stand toe to toe with scientists. Then we go out and have tons of fun! We also host a variety of events that the whole campus can enjoy, from the Biotech Student Research Expo to raffles and liquid nitrogen ice cream fundraisers.

  • JCC Biotech Student Research Expo
  • Trips to scientific conferences every year in great cities, e.g. Boston, Washington, DC, and New Orleans
    • Experimental Biology Conference, American Association of Immunologists, Community College Undergraduate Research Initiative
  • Fundraisers, such as selling liquid nitrogen ice cream and soup and sandwich lunches
  • Raffles, such as our Hungry Like the Wolf raffle
