We foster interactions between Boston-area postdoctoral fellows and local biotech companies.

The Industry Exploration Program (IEP) strives to fill an unmet need for postdoctoral fellows, who are trained to excel in academia yet are rarely provided with a broad understanding of careers beyond academia. We foster interactions between Boston-area postdoctoral fellows and local biotech companies, providing career education for postdocs, and opportunities for future collaborations and employment opportunities.

On an IEP visit to a biotech company, postdocs have the chance to spend a day on site, learning about the culture and career options at the company, and interacting with industry scientists. The IEP was founded in 2009, in a collaboration between MassBioEd Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital.
