The internships are not paid.However students that qualify for work study may use the internship hours towards their qualifying time.

Interns commit to spending 2-4 days per week, 2-4 hours per day reviewing the scientific literature, writing new protocols, planning experiments, working in the lab, analyzing experimental results, and participating in lab meetings.

Our Director assigns students to projects based on the interest, experience and skill level of each student.

Several of our graduates indicate the bench experience gained by working at InnovaBio created a competitive edge when seeking employment as a research associate in a biotechnology company.

Internships are usually started in at the beginning of the semesters/terms, but they can really be started any time, dependent on availability of work for additional interns.
