Academy Students Begin Industry Internships
On March 8 the Class of 2021 began the final leg of their Academy journey — a three-month internship in a professional biotech lab in Boston, Cambridge or the North Shore. Six months of intensive, hands-on training in the Academy lab has prepared the students for the experience and set them up for success.
Each student will intern in the lab between 30-40 hours a week, and be paired with an internship mentor at their company to provide guidance and support throughout the next 3 months. Students will check in virtually with Academy staff every week, and then return to the Academy in June for graduation.
The list of participating internship partners is exceptional, and it includes some of the top laboratories in the area. We are incredibly proud of this class and look forward to following their accomplishments.
