“In 2012, a friend of mine received an internship through the Mass Life Sciences Center’s Internship Challenge. She knew I was having a hard time finding internships and told me to apply. I did, and by the next week I had accepted an internship at Addgene, a non-profit plasmid repository in Cambridge. As a Biochemistry/Molecular Biology major, I was able to make use of the lab skills I gained in college. I was an intern at Addgene from March through the beginning of January, when I was offered the opportunity to become a part-time Lab Technician. Now that I have graduated from BU I am employed full-time at Addgene. By participating in the MLSC Internship Challenge I found a great job at an amazing company… and it’s a nice perk that I am able to stay and work in Boston!”
