UTRF’s Internship Program – Accepting Applications

The UTRF internship program is a hands-on opportunity to explore new innovations being developed at UT and to understand the transition from research to a commercial product. Our interns work closely with UTRF’s licensing staff to provide support for innovation assessments while obtaining valuable experience in preparation for careers that merge science with business development, entrepreneurship, and law. Candidates must be U.S. citizens or permanent U.S. residents.


“UTRF’s internship was an important platform to develop skills I needed to transition to a non-bench career.”

Dr. Brian Fane, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Tennessee, UTRF’s 2016-2017 intern

“My internship experience at UTRF had allowed me to see the big picture of the commercialization pipeline starting from government funding to academic research and finally to industry partnership.”

CeCe Ging, JD, University of Tennessee, UTRF’s 2012-2013 intern
