Sarah Everett to Spend Summer Supporting Alabama’s Bioscience Community 

BIO Alabama’s summer intern program serves college students who are intrinsically curious about Alabama’s bioscience industry and are motivated to promote the intellectual and innovative capital that make our state a premier place to invest, start, and grow in bioscience. 

Sarah Everett, a Master of Biotechnology student at The University of Alabama at Birmingham, was recently accepted into BIO Alabama’s summer internship program. 

“BIO Alabama has been an incredible resource for our Master of Biotechnology program. My peers and I have had the opportunity to work with the organization on various research projects,” said Sarah Everett. “I love science but have an interest in learning more about business operations, especially marketing, and gaining knowledge, skills, and abilities beyond the laboratory.”

Everett will spend her summer supporting back office operations, marketing, and event planning to further the mission of BIO Alabama, the state affiliate of Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) and the leading advocate for Alabama’s bioeconomy. 

“Internships present an incredible opportunity for students to translate their knowledge, gain experience, and build their network,” said Sonia Robinson, Executive Director of BIO Alabama. “We are thrilled to be able to offer an internship program designed to introduce our participating students to our bioscience community more broadly. Sarah will have the opportunity to plan and implement projects, support key initiatives, and play an active role in amplifying the work of our bioscience researchers, scientists, and business leaders.”

BIO Alabama provides remote internship opportunities throughout the year. In addition to BIO Alabama, a number of bioscience companies across the state welcome interns. Interested students may contact BIO Alabama for more information. Bioscience companies who have available internships are encouraged to send internship opportunities to BIO Alabama for assistance in promoting those opportunities to partner colleges and universities.  

BIO Alabama is a membership-based professional organization representing the state on a national and international stage. Interns support the executive director in further connecting our bioscience ecosystem. Internships with BIO Alabama are for college credit and follow the college or university's internship guidelines including minimum hour requirements and deliverables.
