Industry Need

The biomanufacturing industry could benefit from industry-forward training programs that will enable learners to enter and advance in careers in biomanufacturing and will teach the knowledge and skills most valuable to employers.

Solution

This project models a public-private partnership approach to workforce training in cell and gene therapy biomanufacturing. UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education will offer a program that will combine foundational knowledge of cell and gene therapies delivered online, with hands-on training in biomanufacturing skills and processes.  

  • Evaluation and feedback from industry partners will ensure the relevance of the curriculum to manufacturing roles.  
  • The program also aims to develop BIPOC talent in cell and gene manufacturing through scholarships that fund participation in the training program and to sustain the scholarship program through industry partnerships.  


Outcomes and Impacts

The training program will establish sharable best practices that can be leveraged to replicate public-private partnership models for addressing ongoing challenges and needs in workforce development.
