Engineering Biology in Cambridge


Bio-spark is an entrepreneurial programme and support system for early-career academics considering a career in business and enterprise.

Bio-spark is a gateway into industry and start-up formation. It is a fellowship programme that provides internships at Pharma, Biotech or Venture partners, mentorship for those with ideas for setting up companies, and networking opportunities for all Bio-spark fellows. This is a “learn by experience” programme that runs outside of PhD and Postdoc responsibilities.

The deadline for applications is 26th June for Challenge-solving and Exploring fellowships, and 1st September for company-seeding fellowships.
More information and the application form can be accessed at the Bio-spark website.
