ABOUT INTERNBIO 

Employers want experience to give experience. How to get experience without experience? And employers say they can’t find diverse talent. How to find diverse talents who are biopharma-ready with experience after graduation? InternBio has a solution.

INITIATED IN 2008

Who We Are

Conceived decades ago and initiated in 2008, InternBio is Boston’s nonprofit biopharma internship organization through which diverse college students with no experience get experience, so employers always find qualified, new, diverse students biopharma-ready after graduation. Also through InternBio, diverse high school students with no exposure get exposure. Our bold vision is, InternBio in every college cluster, especially to reach more women, underrepresented minorities, disadvantaged backgrounds, first-generations, and immigrants. Diversity solved!

What We Do

InternBio gets work anytime year-round from biopharma companies to give work experience to college students, so biopharma employers always find qualified, new, diverse graduates biopharma-ready after graduation, faster.

In addition, InternBio gets work anytime to give career exposure to high school students to help them better map their paths to college majors and career, faster.

Managers, when you need students anytime to help with projects, let’s connect.

Interns can engage in clinical trials, observational studies, and real-world evidence generation to support innovation in medicine, vaccine, medical device, diagnostics, and healthcare for patient health and global public health.  

Conceptualized decades ago, initiated in 2008, and focused exclusively on interns since 2021, InternBio collaborates across stakeholders and is powered by a stakeholder advisory group.

Our Why

Many strategies have been used by biopharma companies and organizations for decades to increase diversity and inclusion in the biopharma industry, among them are (a small sample, no specific order):

  • Mentoring and coaching

  • Awarding scholarships, grants, sponsorships, loans

  • Building visibility – to overcome the small-N problem

  • Building networks, partnerships, collaboratives

  • Leveraging alumni and other college groups

  • In-company resource groups, workstreams, initiatives

  • Getting hiring managers involved early

  • Conferences, career fairs, workshops, webinars, seminars

  • Summer and non-summer institutes

  • Job announcements to diverse colleges and universities

  • Talent recruitment visits to colleges, universities

  • Career awareness visits to elementary, middle and high schools

  • Adjusting recruitment and retention practices to minimize bias

  • Unconscious bias trainings and discussions

  • Looking to “new” sources for diverse talent

The result: zero or little sustainable impact, and so the discussions continue.

It’s time for something bold and differentiating — InternBio: The biopharma exclusively for interns.

Our bold vision is, InternBio in every college cluster, especially to reach more women, underrepresented minorities, disadvantaged backgrounds, first-generations, and immigrants. Diversity solved! 

Our Mission

Our mission is to help move more medicines and preventions with more diverse talent to more diverse patients everywhere, faster.
