The CV & FIB Translational Research group within the Immunology, Cardiovascular and Fibrosis Thematic Research Center (ICF-TRC) at BMS seeks to understand hypothesis-driven disease pathophysiology to enable patient selection and stratification in clinical trials. The team is highly focused on identifying circulating biomarkers of disease severity to enhance patient stratification and aid the testing of cardiovascular and fibrotic early discovery preclinical candidates.
The CV & FIB Translational Research group is seeking a talented and highly motivated undergraduate student interested in a summer scientific internship that offers hands-on translational research experience in a team‐orientated and fast‐paced environment. The student, working closely with a mentor, will be assigned an exciting project to identify non-invasive biomarkers through human repository sample procurement, processing, analysis and interpretation of findings using a multiple modality approach. During the 10-week internship, the student will be mentored in the development of critical thinking, laboratory skills, translational application to the clinic and preclinical candidates, data and literature analysis, and presentation/verbal communication skills.
An internship in a CV & FIB Translational Research group with a focus on biomarker identification is a valuable opportunity for a student to perform innovative work that will impact early drug discovery pipeline transitions by providing the translational component, to learn about the drug development process in a highly dynamic environment, and to develop educational and technical skills for application towards a scientific career path and career-oriented decisions.
