My internship with BioCryst instilled confidence in me I will carry for a lifetime. I was given the creative space to not only come up with my own ideas but implement them. My mentors encouraged me to take initiative and truly make my internship with BioCryst my own. l had the opportunity to foster cross-departmental collaboration and make meaningful connections with owners outside of my team. I learned about the inner workings of industry patient advocacy work, and how BioCryst works to amplify the patient voice.”
