Students: Apply now for summer STEM experience

Austin Community College District (ACC) students interested in careers in biopharmaceuticals may apply now for a special, summer STEM program.

Applications are now open for the 2021 NIIMBL eXperience. The two-week virtual program provides students opportunities to learn about the operations of large biomanufacturers, cutting-edge technologies, and how the federal government plays a role in bringing life-saving treatments to patients. 

About the Experience
Over the course of two weeks, students will attend a series of virtual interactive sessions and presentations hosted by industry experts, nonprofits, and academia. Participants can gain a deeper understanding of how the biopharmaceutical industry impacts the lives of patients around the world and explore pathways to a successful career in the industry. In previous years, hosts have included top biopharmaceutical companies Genentech, Merck, and AstraZeneca. Throughout the program, students get:

  • A snapshot into the world of biopharmaceuticals

  • Access to industry experts

  • Networking opportunities

  • Career development expertise

The program is open to all freshman and sophomore students enrolled in a STEM-based major. It specifically targets African-American/Black, Latinx, and Native American students.
