Register for the Biotech Seminar Series co-hosted by DTU and BTEC

Published February 16, 2024

BTEC and the Biotech Lifelong Learning program at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) will co-host a series of six free seminars from February through June of this year for biotechnology researchers, students, and industry professionals. The series is intended to bridge the gap between academia and industry and to foster collaboration and exchange of knowledge.

Research and development made possible by the Accelerated Innovation in Manufacturing Biologics (AIM-Bio) program will be highlighted throughout the series. The AIM-Bio program, funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation, is a five-year collaboration between NC State and DTU to drive innovation in research and education in manufacturing biopharmaceuticals.

Each hour-long seminar will feature a presentation by a biomanufacturing expert from DTU, NC State, or the University of California San Diego and be followed by a question-and-answer session. All sessions will be streamed online via Zoom, and four sessions will allow for in-person attendance on the Lyngby campus of DTU. The schedule of seminars appears below; each begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 10:00 a.m. EST followed by a networking session for anyone in attendance at DTU. Learn more and register to attend.
