ABOUT INTERNBIO

Who We Are

Many strategies have been used for decades to increase diversity and inclusion in the biopharmaceutical industry. The result: zero, and so the beat goes on.

It’s time for something bold: InternBio. InternBio is Boston’s biopharma internship workplace on college campus for talented college and high school students as interns. InternBio operates as a CRO exclusively for interns (contract research organization for interns). Opening soon at UMass Amherst Mount Ida Campus (Boston area). Our bold vision is an InternBio in every college supercluster.

At InternBio, you don’t need biopharma experience to get biopharma experience, and employers always find qualified, new, diverse talent ready for first job. Be Bold!

We Are Different

  • InternBio is not a recruitment agency.
  • InternBio is not a boot camp.
  • InternBio is a place to work. Exclusively for interns.
  • Interns work at InternBio for companies.
  • Interns work offsite at local companies.
  • Interns do not pay us or work for free. We pay interns.
  • Anytime biopharma internships throughout the year.
  • We are inclusive and diverse.

We get work to give work experience to students. With internship experience, college students can strengthen their job applications to biopharma companies, and high school students can strengthen their college applications.

What We Do

  • Training internships 
  • Working internships
  • Training Institutes 

Our training internships (interns learn then do), working internships, and training institutes are throughout the year, so employers in biopharma, and more generally in the life sciences industry, always find new, diverse talent ready to make an impact on Day 1 in first jobs in the industry. 

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 “companies.”

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 life science 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 an InternBio in every college supercluster. Diversity solved! 

Our Mission

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