The University of Chicago Life Sciences Alumni Group ("LSAG") brings together all alumni who are interested in the life sciences, including health care in all its aspects. Members come from industry, academia, health care delivery, the financial services and consulting sectors, as well as the legal profession. LSAG benefits alumni by creating networking and educational events and resources, and by enhancing ties with the University through outreach and mentorship programs for current students and recent graduates.


Please join the Life Sciences Alumni Group to:

Connect: LSAG facilitates professional networking in all areas of the life sciences, including industry, finance, law, academia, and health care practice. The network includes MBAs, MDs, PhDs, JDs, and BA/BSs that want to connect with and benefit fellow alumni. Networking occurs through LSAG organizational meetings, regional events, and access to the LSAG Community Directory on this website.

Learn: LSAG organizes presentations, panel discussions, and seminar events for its membership. For an example of a major LSAG event, please visit this link.

Mentor: LSAG offers a way for interested alumni to assist current students and recent graduates. Mentorship can take many forms: being an informational resource or on-going mentor to an individual, assisting the University's Career Advisory Services group, or actually offering internships at your business.

Promote: LSAG seeks to promote the University of Chicago brand by increasing the visibility of UChicago alumni involved in the life sciences. Our alumni are involved in many segments and roles in the life sciences, including CEOs at healthcare companies and investment banks, Partners at law and venture capital firms, Professors at leading universities, and prominent Physicians in communities around the nation.

Lead: LSAG leadership is open to any member who would like to join one of its regional steering committees. The steering committees plan activities for panel discussions, presentations, seminars and networking events for its membership as well as guide the general direction of the LSAG organization.
