The Johns Hopkins University and BD Diagnostics have partnered to offer a unique master's
fellowship in the field of bioscience regulatory affairs. The program, which begins in the fall
semester, is now accepting applications.
"Johns Hopkins and BD Diagnostics have a shared interest in cultivating and educating the next
generation of workers in the field of regulatory affairs," said Lynn Johnson Langer, associate program
chair of the university's Master of Science in Bioscience Regulatory Affairs Program.
Students accepted into this fellowship will take courses at Johns Hopkins' Montgomery County
and Homewood campuses, or online.
Marc Rize, human resources director of BD Diagnostics, said, "We see this as an opportunity to
employ and mentor some of the best talent in the industry. The rigor of Johns Hopkins' master of
science in bioscience regulatory affairs curriculum, combined with real-world application and
mentoring from seasoned professionals at BD, will create a world-class experience for a select group
of up-and-coming regulatory affairs students."
During the initial five-year phase of this fellowship, BD will provide salary and tuition support
for up to five incoming JHU students each year. BD will also provide, through designated members of
its staff, mentoring of the fellows. Students will be required to successfully complete BD's
employment process and meet BD's requirements for continued employment.
Students completing Johns Hopkins' MS in Bioscience Regulatory Affairs Program are expected
to be able to lead regulatory affairs initiatives in government and industry.
BD Diagnostics is a leading global medical technology company that develops, manufactures and
sells medical devices, instrument systems and reagents. Headquartered in Franklin Lakes, N.J., the
