BTI's (BioTechnical Institue of Maryland) Mission: Since 1998, the BioTechnical Institute of Maryland's BioSTART to Laboratory Associates Program provides tuition-free training in basic laboratory skills to bright, ambitious, unemployed and underemployed residents of Baltimore City. More than 300 graduates have received a combination of classroom instruction, hands-on training and on-the-job work experience through internships. These successful graduates have realized employment opportunities and new careers with more than 35 employers. These employers benefit from a stream of ready-for-hire, well-qualified lab technicians.

Since 2010 BioBuzz has been hosting the Maryland Biotech community at monthly networking events and meet-ups. These regular monthly events have a causal, social atmosphere and host a widely diverse group of biotech professionals who attend. There are no lectures or seminars and there’s no agenda or program; just fun and networking with your peers. BioBuzz is working to build a stronger community by bringing the biotech workforce out of the labs to culture relationships, instead of cells. By building a stronger social community we will enhance business and job opportunities for everyone in the region.
