Industry partners will be the major constituents of our External Advisory Board, providing advice and the latest information on the needs and requirements of the local biotechnology industry. Changes to the curriculum will be implemented through the advice of these partners.
The following organizations have supported our efforts to develop our program and have provided advice and, in the case of NYBA, NYSTAR and NYEDC, have provided External Advisory Board members:
The New York Biotechnology Association (NYBA)
New York State Foundation for Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR)
The New York City Economic Development Corporation(NYEDC)
Our industry partners will provide seminar speakers to inform faculty and students of the opportunities and latest trends in the local biotech industry, and related research applications. They will be asked to provide internships and job placement opportunities for our students.
Our Internship Coordinator will work closely with our partners and will develop internship commitments and place students in these internships during the llife of the award. A directory of external placement sites will be created and maintained.
Post- award, internship commitments will be maintained and iinstitutionalized by the Magner Center at Brooklyn College and the Career Development Center at KCC, as part of their regular responsibilities.
