New Fellowship Class!

This July we welcomed 70 new fellows to the RPIF Family. Every year our fellowship class has continued to grow, and this year is no exception. Our total number of fellows for the 2015-2016-fellowship year has expanded to 120! The majority of our fellows are located at our various partner companies within the tri-state area, however we are steadily and happily growing to different parts of the country. Since 2013 we have had a partnership with Genentech in San Francisco,California, and this year we introduced two new companies to the RPIF Program: Teva and Astra Zeneca. Our Teva Fellows are located in Horsham, Pennsylvania, while our Astra Zeneca Fellows report to work in Wilmington,Delaware and Fort Washington, Pennsylvania. We look forward to an exciting year, learning and making memorable connections!
