Tomorrow’s bioscience leaders working on today’s projects
TMP projects are traditionally managed by a team of three to five advanced graduate students. Focused and highly capable, our students have backgrounds in biology, bioengineering, chemistry, physics, medicine, and more. Typically, student teams manage TMPs from fall through spring semesters contributing approximately 2,000 hours in aggregate to the project. Additionally, a subset of team members can work as summer interns to jump-start the full project prior to the fall kickoff. The student team—in collaboration with the faculty advisor and corporate liaison—develops a project plan that details milestones, accountabilities, deliverables, and timelines. While this plan guides the team’s efforts over the life of the project, it is frequently updated to reflect changing information and marketplace dynamics.
