New NC Biomanufacturing Training Center Opens At NC State

A biomanufacturing training center that will provide hands-on experience for students and job seekers has opened at North Carolina State University.

Governor Mike Easley and state higher education leaders dedicated the Golden LEAF Biomanufacturing Training and Education
Center in a ceremony on N.C. State's Centennial Campus today.

The center will partner with North Carolina Central University and the state Community College System and train up to two-thousand
people annually in pharmaceutical, agricultural and other
biotechnology industries.

The center will simulate a biomanufacturing plant that can produce biopharmaceutical products and package them in a sterile
environment that allows students to use similar equipment and
laboratories they would see on the job.
