Industrial Internship Program

The North Carolina Biotechnology Center created the Industrial Internship Program (IIP) in 2012 to provide internship opportunities for undergraduates, graduate students and recent graduates in business administration or the life sciences. These internships provide real-world work experience, critical to helping students transition to careers in the state’s life science sector, while participating companies can gain valuable assistance with a broad range of product development and business development activities.

Program History

Since its inception, the Industrial Internship Program has sponsored 31 internship opportunities at 24 different life science companies and organizations.
