Industry Bridge Program

Company visits will vary depending on the companies’ needs and can last from a few hours to all day. A typical visit will consist of a facilities tour, presentations by the company employees (research, company mission, etc.) and a networking lunch for the attendees to get a chance to talk with the industry scientists in small groups. The Industry Bridge Program does not provide one-on-one meetings. The purpose of this program is not to lead you to a job offer; it is for you to get an inside look at life as an industry scientist.


Selection of participants is on a first-come, first-served basis. On average, we expect 10-20 participants per visit. Upcoming visit dates will be announced by email and posted to this site.


  1. Must be a full-time postdoctoral associate or ≥ fourth year graduate student at Scripps Research.
  2. Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously participated in an SoF IBP visit.
  3. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
  4. Cancellation within 72 hours of the event will count as attending the visit and affect future IBP visits!
