Livia Jojo to Spend Summer & Fall Supporting the Alabama Bioscience Community  

BIO Alabama welcomes it’s third student intern and second Master of Biotechnology student into it’s summer internship program, a program for 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. 

Livia Jojo, a Master of Biotechnology student at The University of Alabama at Birmingham, was recently accepted to BIO Alabama’s summer internship program. She will continue her internship into the fall to assist with BIO Alabama’s annual conference. 

“Expanding my experience and learning more about business operations, marketing, and public relations is why I chose BIO Alabama for a summer and fall internship,” said Livia Jojo. “Since March, I’ve had the opportunity to work in a laboratory fine tuning my knowledge, skills, and abilities. Now I’m ready to expand and broaden the scope of my KSAs.”  

Jojo will spend her summer and fall researching, planning, and implementing the communications and outreach for BIO Alabama’s annual conference including the management of project timelines and the creation of communication and creative assets. The conference theme is a continuation of BIO Alabama’s mission - to connect the Alabama bioscience community. Jojo will liaise with sponsors, presenters, and registered attendees to ensure they have an incredible experience while connecting with bioscience peers around the state and regionally. 

“While the look and feel of large gatherings is still uncertain - one thing is certain, Alabama’s bioscience community has responded in jaw-dropping ways to a global pandemic,” said Sonia Robinson, Executive Director of BIO Alabama. “Our annual conference will provide an opportunity to share the stories of innovation, breakthrough, and success more broadly and we’re thrilled to have Livia on board to help us spread the word and create an exceptional show that will ultimately connect, educate, and inspire our conference attendees.” 

BIO Alabama provides remote internship opportunities throughout the year and is currently accepting resumes for it’s fall internship program.  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.  

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.
