Oxford Saïd student involvement

Are you an Oxford Saïd student with a strong interest in biotech innovation?

This is a unique opportunity for our students with an interest in healthcare innovation and biotech (Biotech: biomedical innovation, including drug discovery and development, digital therapeutics, diagnostics, data analytics and AI in the context of biotechnology) to join high-growth potential biomedical founding teams from Oxford and Munich and gain experience in sharing their business acumen with their team. It is also an amazing opportunity to network with industry experts, mentors, researchers and biomedical teams from across Europe. 

This is for students who are committed to support a biomedical team for the entire programme by working on the teams concept throughout.
