ABOUT INTERNBIO | we get work to give work experience and exposure

INITIATED IN 2008

We get work from the life sciences industry (more below). The global life sciences industry is broad and includes biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, as well as vaccine, medical device, diagnostics, generics companies, global health organizations, contract research organizations (service providers), health research institutes, and independent consultants; hereafter referred to as “biopharma companies.”

Who We Are

InternBio is not a recruitment agency or laboratory. Conceived decades ago and initiated in 2008 and now based at UMass Amherst Mount Ida Campus (Boston area), InternBio is Boston’s biopharma internship workplace for college students, where no experience gets experience, so employers always find qualified, new, diverse students biopharma-ready for first job after graduation. InternBio is also a biopharma internship workplace for high school students, where no exposure gets exposure.

We operate as a CRO for interns (contract research organization). We get work to give work experience and exposure. We are building futures. Come join us.

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

What We Do

  • Initially, we focus in two functional areas: Clinical Operations and Data Science
  • We get work to give work experience and exposure, anytime throughout the year.
  • We hire college and high school students as interns.
  • Interns do not pay us or work for free. We pay interns.

InternBio gets college internship work from biopharma companies to give work experience on college campus to diverse college students anytime throughout the year, so students seeking an opportunity to strengthen their job applications to biopharma employers get an opportunity, and biopharma employers always find qualified, new, diverse graduates ready for first job after graduation, faster.

In addition, InternBio gets high school internship work from local businesses to give career exposure on college campus to diverse high school students anytime throughout the year, to help them better map their paths to college and career, faster.

Guided by managers and mentors, interns 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 by a cure collaborative, 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 life sciences/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 — plus access to talent anywhere in the world. Diversity solved!
