Intern – Sam Holden

I undertook my PIPS internship at The Company of Biologists in the Spring of 2018. I wanted to get a feel for what the publishing industry is like from the ‘other side’, as it were, as well as a more general interest in exploring a career in science outside of the laboratory.

Intern – Sarah Morson

In the autumn of 2017 I undertook my PIPs internship at The Company of Biologists, the publisher behind five major journals including Development – the journal which hosts the community site the Node. I was keen to experience the publishing side of science, and see what a non-academic career in science could be like.
