  • Work with NYC industry partners to develop relevant and attractive experiences, including frameworks, resources, and structured activities to expand, diversify, and cultivate the city's emerging talent pool
  • Position NYC’s life sciences industry as a valued partner to the university community to identify student career development needs, share resources and information to support fieldwork/career experiences, inform program outcomes, and share program learnings to make internships scalable and sustainable
  • Attract and prepare a diverse range of NYC students for careers in the life sciences sector to ensure that the sector has a wealth of talent to fill the industry demand for good-quality jobs
