Technical University of Denmark (DTU) AIM-Bio Research Exchange
Welcome to NC State!
NC State hosts students from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) as part of a research exchange program with our Biomanufacturing Training and Education Center (BTEC) that is focused on an international collaborative research and training program in biomanufacturing science and technology. The Accelerated Innovation in Manufacturing Biologics (AIM-Bio) project will establish a world-class program in bioprocess research and development and workforce training that focuses on products and technologies for the future of biopharmaceutical manufacturing.
The GTI helps orient, connect, and integrate DTU students into the NC State and surrounding community. This site serves as a resource for the students who are here for the short-term research exchange program.
