The BMS Educational Alliance helped launch the BBS Program and annually provides incoming and first year students with opportunities to do summer internships with their scientists at their research campus 20 minutes from Yale. Research areas are in biotechnology, genomics, chemistry, pharmacology, neuroscience, and virology. For those interested in research careers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors, BMS internships will be invaluable.

BBS applicants who receive an offer of admission to Yale will be contacted in March to invite them to apply for an internship with BMS.  A number of research projects will be available, and students will be paired with BMS scientists based on their interests. Space is limited, and not all students can be accommodated in a given year.  Students will have an opportunity to apply again, though, to conduct an internship in the summer following their first year of study.

At the end of their internships, students will have an opportunity to present their work to BMS scientists and Yale faculty.
