What does a Fannin Innovation Studio internship entail?
Our internship program provides hands-on operational experience in early-stage life science development. Our interns work closely with established and potential portfolio companies, experientially learning about biomedical commercialization. Interns might be tasked with assisting with due diligence, working on market analysis, assisting with product development, or researching and understanding key regulatory requirements. All interns work closely with the core Fannin team to ensure a beneficial and useful experience.
What does our ideal intern candidate look like?
Fannin’s intern program is primarily intended for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, medical students or residents, and engineers who are interested in life science commercialization. However, anyone with a strong interest in biomedical development is encouraged to apply.
What is a Fannin Innovation Studio Fellowship?
A fellowship at Fannin Innovation Studio is most-often likened to a post-doc position in life-science commercialization. A fellowship is a two-year program, with the opportunity to gain real-world experience in life-science entrepreneurship. Fannin offers two fellowship opportunities: our “Entrepreneurship Fellowship” and our “Business Development Fellowship”.
Entrepreneurship Fellows work more closely within the operational landscape of our portfolio companies, including managing research and development activities, intellectual property, more detailed business development, regulatory affairs, and financing.
Business Development Fellows work across our portfolio and within the larger Fannin landscape to establish partnerships with existing pharmaceutical companies and academic institutions in an effort to help bring additional technologies into Fannin’s portfolio, and to out-license more advanced technologies.
Both fellowship opportunities will help fellows build networks in biotechnology, and have the opportunity to attend industry workshops and conferences. Fannin also offers a didactic biotechnology development series for our fellows, to supplement their hands-on training and experiences.
How do I apply?
Fellowships are offered periodically throughout the year.
