NC State's Golden LEAF Biomanufacturing Training and Education Center (BTEC) is providing hands-on training for vaccine manufacturers from across the globe. A three-week, laboratory-intensive course gives trainees from a variety of countries experience with best production practices for the manufacture of influenza vaccine. This training program is funded by a grant from the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
"In the event of a pandemic, manufacturers across the globe will be expected to rapidly produce vaccines to save lives," says BTEC Director Ruben Carbonell. "This training will increase the world's infrastructure for safe vaccines and, by extension, help protect the United States from pathogens borne by air or other sources."
