I would like to let you know the I was recently hired by a Biotech company and will start working next month. There are many factors that led me to getting the job, but I know that mentioning on my resume that I completed the BioCollaborative LSIP also contributed to me gaining employment with that company… again my sincere appreciation!

Brian H, USMC

I cannot thank you enough for the experience I had at the MVP event. I have attended a lot of workshops and events and hands down that was one of the best ones I have attended... ... It was at the event that I really got the 1 on 1 help I needed.

David Webb

The value is clear for those of our staff who have gone through the BioCollaborative eLearning programs. The expansive cross-training nature of the BioCollaborative learning architecture has us all speaking the same language and to the same business standard.


I've finished the course! What a wonder!! I loved every minute of it and learned so much.. ...Outside of my two graduate degree programs (Masters and Educational Specialist), it's the best course I've ever taken, bar none!! Thank you again for all your support and encouragement.
Warmest regards, Mishele


I am very happy to inform you that I have, indeed, found full-time employment in the life sciences industry! My BioCollaborative Life Science Immersion Program (LSIP) certificate definitely helped me in getting this position.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Nurith Amitai, Ph.D.
