Illumina Summer Interns

Each summer, our Illumina interns put our culture of giving back into action by completing a social impact project. The application of skills-based volunteering is just another way we aim to embed Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) into every facet of Illumina and support the organizations that champion our values of building a healthier, more sustainable, and more equitable future for all.
