ABOUT INTERNBIO

Who We Are

Boston’s biopharma exclusively for interns, preparing diverse college students and recent graduates for employers through biopharma training and working internships and project work.

What We Do

  • We give you our own training internships.
  • We give you our own working internships.
  • We give you our own project work.          
  • We get you internships and project work with companies.
  • In all, you get mentored, supervised, and paid, and connected with first permanent jobs.

Our training internships (interns learn then do), working internships, and project work are throughout the year for diverse college students and recent graduates, so employers in biopharma, and more generally in the life sciences industry, always find new, diverse graduates ready to make an impact on Day 1 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 industry, among them are (a small sample, no specific order):

  1. Mentoring and coaching
  2. Awarding scholarships, grants, sponsorships, loans
  3. Building visibility – to overcome the small-N problem
  4. Building general networks, partnerships, collaboratives
  5. Leveraging alumni and other college groups
  6. In-company resource groups, workstreams, initiatives
  7. Getting hiring managers involved early
  8. Conferences, career fairs, workshops, webinars, seminars
  9. Summer and non-summer institutes
  10. Job announcements to diverse colleges and universities
  11. Talent recruitment visits to colleges, universities
  12. Career awareness visits to elementary, middle and high schools
  13. Adjusting recruitment and retention practices to minimize bias
  14. Unconscious bias trainings and discussions
  15. 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, built in Boston to discover and develop new, diverse talent every day, everywhere, so employers always find new, diverse candidates.

Our bold vision is an InternBio in every college and biopharma supercluster in the U.S., built by InternBio, by the industry, and by innovative companies. Together . . . diversity solved! 

Our Mission

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