Internships

THBD works with the administration at Temple College and the Temple Bioscience Institute (TBI) to help facilitate internships for students. We also work with Temple High School to provide paid internships to those who qualify. Our students have worked in research labs at Baylor Scott & White, Veterans Administration of Central Texas, and Texas A&M Health Science Center. The experience from these internships is invaluable. Several students have shaped their future careers based on the work they have done with our collaborators during a THBD-sponsored internship.

We are proud to sponsor this high caliber of students through internships, and hope they return to Temple to continue the growth of biotechnology in our city. Please contact Tami Annable, Executive Director, for details about internship opportunities and how to apply.

Meet Our High School Intern: George Robinson

George Robinson was an intern with THBD in the summer of 2018. The Texas Bioscience Institute (TBI) summer research program began with a five-year grant from the National Science Foundation with a purpose of exposing high school students to STEM fields — science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

George Robinson, a senior at Troy High School and Texas Bioscience Institute, was offered a job with SiMMo3d, where he completed his summer internship. He was tasked this summer with building a compact sized board for the apparatus that is used as a training device of a heart procedure.

Robinson worked with Ryan Quinn and Colin Dodson, cofounders of SiMMo3D and tenants of THBD.

Meet Temple ISD Interns: Brianna and Eric

Temple Independent School District and THBD have partnered to provide high school students the opportunity to be exposed to internships with local area bioscience and health-related researchers through the TISD intern program. These high school students are paid and work part-time at THBD to gain valuable experience and mentorship with in-the-field training.

Both Eric and Brianna have learned a lot so far from their internships at TISD. They have each worked with startup tenants at the District and learned so much outside of the classroom about what it is like to work in biotechnology fields. For more information about TISD and THBD’s paid internship program, please contact Tami Annable at tamia@templebioscience.org.

Meet a Research Scholar: Lars Kuslich

Lars Kuslich, a 2017 Research Scholars intern, has returned to THBD to work for the tenant company Advanced Scanners.

A graduate of Texas A&M Master’s of Engineering and Regulatory Certificate Program, his internship at THBD was the last requirement prior to receiving his Master’s degree in BME. While at Texas A&M, Lars served as a research intern under David Dostal, a professor in the department of medical physiology at the Temple VA.

Upon graduation, Lars was hired by Advanced Scanners and participated in the company’s winning pitch during THBD’s 2018 symposium.
