A hallmark of the MS in Pharmceutical Sciences (PSC) program is the completion of a biopharmaceutical research internship.
The state of Maryland is home to one of the largest life science research hubs in the United States. Students enrolled in the MS in PSC program based at the Universities at Shady Grove will be able to take advantage of the campus’s prime location in Rockville, Md., when completing a biopharmaceutical research internship with a researcher or scientist mentor from the university, pharmaceutical or biotechnology industry, or government agency.
This internship will help students gain hands-on experience in the laboratory, while equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in a variety of research and leadership positions after graduation.
Currently, the following companies and agencies are accepting student research placements:
- Institute for Bioscience & Biotechnology Research (IBBR)
- National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
- PSC Faculty
Please continue to check this page in the future, as new internship placement sites will continue to be added as they are approved by the program's leadership.
