"My MBA internship at Phoenix Molecular Designs was an incredible experience. Surrounded by an amazing team with years of experience, I learned an enormous amount about the drug development process, and couldn’t have asked for a better place to spend my summer. Everyone I encountered at Phoenix was approachable, supportive, and most importantly, enthusiastic about their work. The fast-paced environment allowed me to challenge myself with projects that were complex and interesting, and I always felt that the work I was doing was appreciated and added value to Phoenix’s goals as a company. I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to work with the amazing team at Phoenix, and feel it was the perfect setting to utilize the skills I learned in the MBA program."

"I was fortunate enough to be an intern at Phoenix Molecular Designs during the summer of 2015. I had the opportunity to learn so much about the biotechnology industry from drug development to finance to pitching to potential investors. It was wonderful to work with Phoenix and I am honoured that I got to be a part of important, potentially life saving research led by Dr. Sandra Dunn and her team."

"The laboratory protocols were very easy to follow and laid out in an organized manner. All the materials and equipment to perform the soft agar assay were available for use and there were no problems performing the assay. With guidance from My-my, I was able to learn and perform the soft agar assay"

"During my internship with Phoenix Molecular Designs, Phoenix MD has provided me insight on current diagnostic tools and how these tools can be applied in a non-academic setting. These valuable experiences not only helped me to give more considerations to clinical applicability while developing diagnostic biomarker panels but also gave me an idea how a research product can be better fitted into a clinical environment."
