Launched in 2019, the Women in Science Translational Research Symposia were created to clarify the most targeted route to commercialization for female scientists and help advance their discoveries to market. The program is committed to addressing the gender gap in innovation and changing this paradigm through knowledge and network creation.

Beginning in 2015, Deerfield started the Deerfield Fellows program, designed to attract students with interest in pursuing healthcare or finance fields from local NYC-area colleges and universities from diverse backgrounds for an immersive summer internship program. Successful summer interns are invited to stay through a yearlong Deerfield Fellowship program, with the most successful of those graduating to become Associates at Deerfield. We are extremely proud of the work our Associates do.
