NCBiotech Jobs Network: Exploring Biomanufacturing Careers within NC

North Carolina ranks among the top three biotechnology regions in the United States with a statewide presence that continues to expand.  Biomanufacturing (products obtained from living cells) represents a significant part of this expansion.  Despite a significant decline in general manufacturing across North Carolina in the past decade, the state’s biomanufacturing companies showed 5.3% annual growth since 2002 and are projecting 6.2% annual growth between 2011 and 2014.

Please join us on Monday, April 28, 2014 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. as we lead a panel discussion about working in biomanufacturing.

What are the current opportunities in biomanufacturing for someone with my background?  How does one prepare for a career in this sector? What is the outlook for future growth in this area?

Our expert panel of thought leaders will include:

  • Travis Pysar, Senior Manager, Manufacturing, Biogen Idec
  • Bruno Pancorbo, Downstream Process Manager, Medicago
  • Ray Anover, Assistant Director, Student Coordination and Industry Relations, Golden LEAF Biomanufacturing Training & Education Center (BTEC)


Doors open at 12:00 p.m. - program begins promptly at 12:30 p.m.

**Dress code is business casual**
