Summer College Student Internships

Offered in partnership with the Hepatitis B Foundation, our 10-Week College Internship provides a unique opportunity for college students in their junior or senior year who are considering graduate school, medical school, or industrial research careers, to spend 10 weeks in an innovative and educational program.

By pairing the students with scientific research professionals, they can gain firsthand experience in research and other scholarly activities. This unique experience allows participants the opportunity to gain a personal perspective on the entire scientific process: from formulating and testing hypotheses, to working with an advisor in a state-of-the-art research laboratory.

Areas of research activity could include translational therapeutics, experimental molecular biology and virology, biomarker discovery, and medicinal and computational chemistry.

Since the Blumberg Institute operates the Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center, a biotechnology business incubator with 40+ small biotech companies, it is also possible for students to observe, and in some cases, work within these entrepreneurial startups.

Applications are accepted beginning in mid-December through early February each year. Successful applicants are notified by April 15. Learn more and apply.
