About Us

Today BioNetwork supports biotechnology businesses and industries in North Carolina through education and workforce training. The staff of BioNetwork also builds awareness of the benefits and career opportunities in biotechnology. As a resource for all 58 community colleges in the state, the staff develops new curriculum, enhances existing curriculum, provides training for community college faculty and assists the NC Community College Customized Training Program.

In addition to training and industry support, three BioNetwork facilities provide hands-on training in a simulated industrial environment.

  1. Capstone Center (Raleigh)
  2. Natural Products Laboratory (Asheville)
  3. Analytical Laboratory (Winston Salem)
With seed money from Golden LEAF Foundation, BioNetwork was created in 2004 to provide world-class training opportunities in biomanufacturing to help transition tobacco growers and producers into new economically sound areas of employment.
