Nicole Migliore Gains Biopharmaceutical Industry Experience

<p><img src="/ses/oaca/images/nicole.jpg" alt="" align="right" hspace="6" vspace="6" />Nicole Migliore is a 2009 graduate of Stevens with a bachelor&rsquo;s in BME, a master's in Engineering Management, and a graduate certificate in pharmaceutical manufacturing practices who highly values her experiences in the <a href="http://www.stevens.edu/co-op/" target="_top">Stevens Cooperative Education (Co-op)</a> program as an influential factor in her current position.</p>
<p>After originally coming to Stevens with the intention of participating in the co-op because of the "very practical way to develop classroom knowledge into a tangible skill set," Nicole was able to try out various roles related to engineering with an emphasis on biomedical/pharmaceutical industries ranging from early stage development to manufacturing.</p>
<p>These experiences helped develop her interest in her current role at <a class="various3" href="http://www.centocororthobiotech.com/cobi/index.html" target="_blank">Centocor</a>, a Johnson and Johnson biopharmaceutical company. Nicole currently works as a research engineer in technical support and technical transfer, and feels the co-op office was instrumental in helping her fully develop specific R&amp; D skills as well as forming key industry contacts.</p>
