Alice Beattie, San Francisco

Alice’s internship was with Magnap, a start-up medical device company supported by QB3, a world-leading institute which commercializes research from the Universities of California. Alice’s role was to be responsible for designing an implant for sleep apnea to be more secure and less invasive for the surgeon.

“I learned so much while being away in California for the summer. I became so much more independent and confident working in a brand new environment. Before I went to the States, my presentation skills were adequate at best, and after my internship I feel totally comfortable giving a presentation to any group of people.”
