The Microbiology and Molecular Biology Department encourages all MMBio majors to participate in any of the department clubs. Clubs are a great opportunity to build professional connections, create lasting relationships, and make a difference by serving in the campus community.
To build connections, create research opportunities, and prepare for postgraduate programs and careers.
We promote the acquisition of knowledge and hope to revive the sentiments born during the original Age of Enlightenment. By sharing our unique passions with those who may have very different interests than our own, we hope to ignite a spark of curiosity among our members in a variety of topics. In doing so, bridges of understanding and respect will be built between ourselves and those with differing perspectives. We strive to emulate the patterns of our various enlightened predecessors such as Voltaire, John Locke, Adam Smith, Edmund Burke, Thomas Paine, and others as we create a unified yet diverse society, whose richness and uniqueness will provide a judgment-free setting of openness, enjoyment, and enhanced learning for all involved.

Operation Outbreak (OO) enhances experiential learning by teaching students the results from various decisions that are made during an outbreak. Through a Bluetooth-based platform and related methods, OO will enable BYU undergraduate students to facilitate outbreak simulations in K-12 schools, generate epidemiological models for scientists, and allow researchers to better understand outbreak culture.
