BioTrain prides itself on offering not only great work experience in the field of biotechnology, but also on the associated weekly professional development series. This summer, BioTrain interns will experience a wide variety of professional development as it relates to working in a scientific field.

Professional development is designed to offer training in professional behavior and expectations specific to the scientific fields. In addition, it provides a structure for BioTrain interns to build professional relationships with HudsonAlpha staff, BioTrain administration and, most importantly, each other.
