The Orange Grove Bio CMC Fellows Program is a year-long unpaid remote internship program offered to University of Cincinnati doctoral students (some masters students and post-docs) that gives them substantive training in early-stage biotech or pharmaceutical CMC. The most promising candidates from the Fellows Program are eligible for full-time hire into Orange Grove upon completion of the program. The internship emphasizes soft skill building, such as understanding vendor relationships and project management, as well as understanding CMC. The Fellows are actively involved in core projects, including CMC diligence, regulatory research, presentations, and CMC planning at portfolio companies.
The Fellows Program is offered exclusively at partner universities of Orange Grove Bio.
The goal of the Program is to introduce CMC to students through a full immersion program that gives them a substantial and unfiltered experience. It is an important way that Orange Grove Bio helps partner universities to strengthen their life science ecosystem that directly benefits the educational prerogatives of the University.
