The Ventilator Project is a new non-profit startup located at MassRobotics in the Seaport district of Boston. Our mission to construct a low-cost, universally accessible ventilator that can save the lives of COVID-19 patients experiencing respiratory illnesses worldwide. Current ventilators can cost upwards of $40,000. Our goal is to rapidly prototype, build & ship ventilators built from readily available parts for a fraction of this price, providing hospitals & patients with a cheaper alternative. Everyone deserves a chance to fight COVID-19, fight with us.  


The Ventilator Project is looking for a Policy Intern who will be responsible for supporting policy projects in collaboration with the engineering and manufacturing teams. This individual will be learning as well as acting as a policy liaison on the FDA EUA and 510k submission process, international processes, FMEA risk analysis, FDA labeling, and/or other assigned projects.

Ideal Skills:

The team comes from a diverse set of backgrounds and skill sets, but each of us share a common calling: we couldn’t continue to sit and wait. We knew it was time to step up and find a solution.
