As educators, we see the mismatch in what the industry needs from its workforce in biotechnology skills. We also see amazing and talented students with high levels of skills that haven't attained a degree but want to enter the biotechnology industry. Helping our students document the skills they have, as they progress through their education and training, is our driving passion. In order to best support our students and trainees, we meet with industry partners in regard to the skills, degrees, or certificates needed for positions in the biotechnology industry.
