The UConn MCB Professional Science Masters (PSM) programs are participants in a program funded by the CT Innovations Higher Education Initiative.

The “Partnership for Innovation and Education” project will integrate educational endeavors of a number of Connecticut academic institutions with the goal of educating and training students for careers in biotechnology. A major benefit of the program is the availability of financial support for internships (30-40 in total), which will facilitate student training and provide important assistance to start-up companies in the state. The MCB PSM programs acknowledge Dr. Caroline Dealy (UConn Health) for spearheading this effort, as well as for her long-term support of the MCB PSM programs.
