Are you a PhD Student wondering about R&D in industry?
Why not try it out as part of an internship class?
No industry experience necessary or expected.
You must be a PhD student who has passed your department’s qualifying exams.
Enrollment is also open to students outside 7 and 20.
International students would need to talk to the ISO about using OPT.
This Fall 2018, 20.930/7.930: Research Experience in Biopharma will run for the fourth time.
