Bridge to Bio is an immersive workforce development program aimed at increasing the diversity of new engineering talent entering the biomanufacturing sector through the Virginia Community College network.
The program integrates three evidence-based pillars of change:
A collaboration among the University of Virginia, Merck, and Pfizer will provide participants access to a top university engineering program, industry-level training, continuous support (e.g., professional development), and structured industrial mentorship.
At the completion of this project, Bridge to Bio will enable a talent pipeline that broadens access and improves the diversity of the biopharmaceutical manufacturing workforce.
