Diversifying Your Talent

Growing and diversifying the pipeline of early talent.

Pennsylvania’s life sciences ecosystem is a key driver in the Commonwealth’s economy and provides more than 100,000 direct, family-sustaining jobs to Pennsylvanians. With the promise of cell & gene therapy largely centered right in Philadelphia, the industry must identify and invest in new talent pipelines to continue to grow.

Project Onramp is a tool for Philadelphia’s life science companies to ensure they tap a local source of diverse talent as they grow. Interns not only mean more people power for your organization, they bring a fresh perspective to your work and offer existing employees an opportunity to serve as mentors.

Filling some of your available internships through Project Onramp is an investment in our industry’s future.

Our Interns

University of Pennsylvania senior Phoenix Garcia-Ramos has always been fascinated by science. They recall being a middle school student in the inner city of Philadelphia and wanting to learn more about weather cycles. So, it was only fitting that Phoenix went on to attend a science and engineering high school. Today, they’re majoring in neuroscience at UPenn.
