Yale Grad Student finds success at 8VC Bio-IT Fellowship

Elias Quijano (MD-PhD student at Yale) served as a 2021 Fellow in 8VC’s Bio-IT Fellowship. A program, started just last year, that identifies entrepreneurial graduate students with passion for “pushing forward new science and its translation into innovative biotechs”. Only 5 candidates were selected in 2021 out of more than 500 applications.

Elias states, “With this new and profound appreciation of the biotech ecosystem, I am hopeful that I too will be able to make contributions that one day improve human health.” 

8VC is seeking applications for their 2022 fellowships. Read the entire article about the 2021 Fellowships here. Application deadline is January 28, 2022.
