Location: Gaithersburg, MD
MedImmune is the worldwide biologics research and development arm of AstraZeneca, a global, innovation-driven biopharmaceutical business that focuses on the discovery, development and commercialization of small molecule and biologic prescription medicines. MedImmune is pioneering innovative research and exploring novel pathways across key therapeutic areas, including respiratory, inflammation and autoimmunity; cardiovascular and metabolic disease; oncology; neuroscience; and infection and vaccines.
We are currently seeking candidates who are working towards obtaining a Bachelor’s, Master’s, or PhD Degree in Science, Engineering or a related major for an internship during the summer of 2018. This internship opportunity is with the Analytical Sciences department.
The objective of this position is to assess feasibility of a plate-based purification system for product quality analysis of cell culture supernatants. The analytical results generated can be used to inform clone selection and upstream process optimization. The application of this system may significantly increase throughput, reduce hands-on analyst time, and decrease required sample volumes. By completing this project, the intern will gain an understanding of current approaches and techniques in analytical sciences.
