A growing industry

Life-Science in Connecticut

Earlier this year, the Governor’s Workforce Council launched the Bioscience Collaborative to cultivate and promote the benefits of Connecticut as a prominent region for bioscience growth and development. The Collaborative is an industry led group with CEO leadership from Alexion AstraZeneca, Ancera, Arvinas, Biohaven Pharmaceutical, Biorez, Cybrexa Therapeutics, Rallybio, ReNetX Bio, Trevi Therapeutics, and more. The Collaborative partnered with initiatives across Connecticut to advance this mission including BioPath, CTNext, BioCT, Yale University, and local universities. 

The purpose of the Life-Science Sprints campaign is to help bring awareness to the resources and workforce available in Connecticut for life-science companies. We hope that this initiative will grow our current community and position Connecticut as a leader in this field.

SPRINT Internships

Connecticut bioscience companies have come together to launch the SPRINT (Student Program to Ready Interns for Next-generation Talent) Internship program. The goal for the 2022 Program was to provide over 100 paid job opportunities in the life-science industry in Summer 2022 for students attending Connecticut Colleges and Universities as well as students with ties to Connecticut. 

There continues to be a coordinated effort to ensure diverse applicants have the maximum opportunity for placement at companies in the region and selected interns will have the chance to get a broader understanding of the life-science industry through rotational talks at various companies. 

 

The 2022 SPRINT Internship Program was a big success!

There were over 170 interns from over 85 colleges and universities who participated in the 2022 SPRINT Internship Program. Interns specialized in fields ranging from research and development to finance to human resources, and much more.
