East Carolina University received funding to expand its ability to train students in pharmaceutical manufacturing and address a regional need for pharmaceutical manufacturers with four-year degrees. The Board approved an award of $1,899,350.00 for equipment and personnel. Students will be able to receive a four-year degree from ECU without leaving their home communities. Training will also be available for professional development to incumbent employees. Companies could use the lab equipment to develop and test new manufacturing processes. ECU is working with Thermo Fischer and Novo Nordisk and partnering with Pitt, Johnston, and Wilson Community colleges in the first two years of the program.
