BioMarin is the world leader in delivering therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with serious and life-threatening rare genetic diseases. We target diseases that lack effective therapies and affect relatively small numbers of patients, many of whom are children. These conditions are often inherited, difficult to diagnose, progressively debilitating and have few, if any, treatment options. BioMarin will continue to focus on advancing therapies that are the first or best of their kind. 



The BioMarin Summer Internship Program will enable students to gain valuable experience and knowledge of the processes and systems within BioMarin, while gaining an insight into the pharmaceutical/biotech industry.


Strategic Network Planning interns will contribute as project leads, co-leads or data analysts in strategic network analysis projects running during the time of their internship.  Such projects do end to end manufacturing network analysis across BioMarin’s products and sites and typically involve a core team from manufacturing, quality, supply chain, finance and other functions.  Interns may also help draft the Technical Operations (TOPS) Strategic Plan which documents such strategies and key assumptions.
