Using a Pipette in a Lab

Operated by the North Carolina Community College System, BioNetwork offers incumbent worker training, transitional worker training, and pre-employment classes on specific topics and skill sets. BioNetwork also supports the future biotechnology and life science workforce through teacher training and outreach.

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

Our Values
BioNetwork's organizational values are as follows:

Quality - Consistently exceeding expectations
Service - Being responsive and committed to stakeholders’ needs
Collaboration - Working in partnership to achieve a common goal
Accountability - Exhibiting honesty, integrity, and responsibility in everything we do

We support these values in our attitudes, behaviors, and actions as we continually improve the ways in which we collaborate, provide service, enhance quality, and exhibit accountability.

Our Mission

BioNetwork provides high-quality economic and workforce development for the biotechnology and life science industries across North Carolina through education, training, and laboratory resources.

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.
