National Center for the Biotechnology Workforce

The National Center for the Biotechnology Workforce (NCBW) provides leadership and a collaborative platform that directly connects industry, educators, and workforce developers to meet the nation’s ever-evolving bioscience workforce needs.

With its focus on capacity building, best practices, professional development, and skills standard generation, NCBW has led several federally funded bioscience workforce initiatives that both promote and build dynamic, on-the-ground, regional and national communities of practice that engage bioscience employers, colleges, trade and workforce organizations, and advanced manufacturing institutes.

Currently, NCBW leads the NSF ATE Skills for Biomedical Emerging Technology Applications (BETA Skills) project which explores advanced technological education for technician-specialists working in convergent technology and is a partner in InnovATEBIO, the NSF ATE National Center for Biotechnology Education, focusing on its Leadership Institute and on assessing emerging technology skill training needs.

Since 2009, NCBW’s public SciTech Lecture Series has attracted a large and diverse monthly audience. Students, faculty, entrepreneurs, scientists, and other interested participants from throughout the community have participated in more than eighty sessions.

NCBW is also home to a state-of-the-art Analytical and Molecular Skills Development Laboratory which provides advanced training and internships for students, as well as equipment and bench space rental to small companies and researchers. AMSDL is a key component of NCBW’s professional development programs which attract bioscience instructors and selected high-school science teachers from across the United States and beyond.
