The Bioscience Industrial Fellowship Project (BIFP) funded by the National Science Foundation through the Advanced Technological Education Program is a three week hands-on and observational fellowship program for high-impact instructors. Fellows reside in Winston-Salem, North Carolina from June 11th -29th, 2018. During their stay, fellows will travel to multiple universities, educational programs, research park and NC Biosciences industrial facility laboratories to elucidate a further understanding of how their curricula translates in this expansive industry.
In addition to the observational site visits, Fellows are immersed in a skills lab “boot camp” provided by three of the NC Community Colleges covering a broad range of skills including but not limited to; instrumentation, sample preparation, cell culture and transfection. Fellows will also gain invaluable insight from industry leaders that provide first-hand experience the application of concepts, techniques, and skills that students need in order to successfully enter the bioscience workforce.
Applications to this fellowship are accepted until the positions are filled.
