Life Science Industry Resources
One part of CSUPERB's mission is to respond and anticipate the needs of the life science industry. Partnerships with industry take many forms from seminar speakers to internships to sponsored research projects. CSUPERB partners with industry associations on workforce development and entrepreneurial education projects. We've listed below links to resources for faculty interested in industry partnerships and developing industry-responsive curriculum.
