Four of the top-5 vaccine manufacturers have set up shop in North Carolina (Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer and Novartis) -- and at least 15 are developing or making vaccines.
The recent opening of the $1 billion, 430,000-square-foot Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics manufacturing plant in Holly Springs brought more than 350 jobs, most being filled by graduates of our biomanufacturing programs.
We've built unique institutions specializing in biomanufacturing, such as BTEC and BRITE, and incorporated numerous other universities and community colleges. Or visit NCBioImpact specifically for vaccine product biomanufacturing.
