The Forward BIO Institute will be establishing a new master’s degree program in biomanufacturing innovation at UW-Madison. The program will have a hands-on emphasis, including course content in internship preparation, bioentrepreneurship, biotechnology development, and biomanufacturing. Research projects will focus on understanding industry dynamics and translating new technologies into products with potential for broad societal impact.
The Career Enhancement Opportunity program facilitates mentored career exploration for graduate students in biotechnology fields by providing internship opportunities in career environments outside of academic research. In partnership with the Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center, Institute-supported efforts will expand the program to engage a broader range of students throughout UW-Madison, and at partner institutions across the U.S., in preparation for understanding and solving problems in biomanufacturing-related industries.
