Weeklong program seeks to inspire college students for careers in biopharmaceutical manufacturing

Applications now being accepted for five locations including North Carolina State University.

Every industry sector needs a more robust talent pipeline, and that is a particularly critical challenge for companies in the biopharmaceutical manufacturing space.

To help alleviate the shortage, the National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals (NIIMBL) has awarded approximately $500,000 in funding to launch the 2024 NIIMBL eXperience program in five locations across the U.S. including the Biomanufacturing Training Center at North Carolina State University.

The NIIMBL eXperience program is an all-expenses paid biopharmaceutical manufacturing immersion program for university and community college students who have completed their first or second year of study. Specifically designed for Black, Latinx, and Indigenous students, the program strives to diversify the school-to-industry pipeline for the biopharmaceutical manufacturing industry.

Applications for the one-week program are now being accepted at this link.
