  • Troubleshoot routine technical challenges and contribute to their resolution
  • Maintain detailed experimental notes and documentation along with entry into an electronic lab notebook
  • Analyze and visualize data using software programs (GraphPad Prism, SoftMax Pro, Excel)
  • Maintain data integrity and rigor
  • Summarize and report data for presentation at research meetings
  • Attend Preclinical Research and cross-functional meetings
  • Produce and present a final poster on data generated during the internship


  • Working towards a BS or BA degree in chemistry, biological science, bioengineering, or equivalent
