Animal Health & Nutrition Intellectual Exchange Group

The Animal Health and Nutrition Intellectual Exchange Group (AH&N IEG) is a group with representation from industry, academia, and the North Carolina Biotechnology Center.  Its mission involves providing a forum for professionals (academics and industry) working in the Animal Health and Nutrition space to discuss topics of relevance and network with each other to build relationships. It will also act as a forum to identify technologies that will be spun out from universities; a forum for company executives to develop peer-level relationships and company collaborations. It aims to become the core of a future cluster in RTP around Animal Health and Nutrition.
