seqll intern 2“The MLSC has given me the opportunity to intern with SeqLL, a biotechnology company that focuses its research on single molecule sequencing, specifically looking to detect changes in RNA and DNA. As a chemistry major at Holy Cross, this internship has provided me with an amazing chance to use my science background to explore the industry and fully experience all the facets of a biotech company. I am exposed to and take part in the SeqLL team’s research that allows the company to grow, and I am also able to see first-hand how a business works to overcome challenges. Even as an intern, I am fully immersed in many different aspects of  the business and the industry as a whole, and I am extremely grateful to MLSC for facilitating this incredible learning experience.”

MALSI“My internship at SeqLL has granted me the opportunity to establish proper lab technique as well as savvy business skills. Interning at SeqLL has opened my eyes to the wide array of careers available in the biotech field. Working alongside biologists and engineers in the lab enabled me to enhance my analytical and critical thinking skills. When I was not in the lab, I was able to work with marketing and management. They graciously brought me along to trade shows and scientific conventions which was instrumental in strengthening my business skills. I am thankful for the Internship Challenge as well as SeqLL for awarding me this experience.”
