GrassRoots selected to participate in NCBC Industrial Fellowship Program
GrassRoots Biotechnology was chosen to participate in the Industrial Fellowship Program offered by the North Carolina Biotechnology Center (NCBC). The fellowships are funded by the NCBC with a portion contributed by the company sponsor. This year, five out of 18 companies from across the state were chosen to sponsor this program.
The Program was instituted by the NCBC to enable Ph.D. scientists to transition into scientific careers in industry. Successful fellowship applicants are placed in two year fellowships with selected NC biotechnology companies. During the two year program, fellows will conduct research in an industrial setting and participate in professional development opportunities at the NCBC. Through this experience, fellows will gain professional experience and establish contacts for future employment in high-level industry scientific positions.
Fellowship applications are accepted through NCBC until May 15, 2010. Details on the NCBC Industrial Fellowship Program can be found here
