Growing Life Sciences
Novo Nordisk is donating $6 million to Durham Technical Community College to support the College’s life sciences programming and its new 35,000-square-foot Life Sciences Training Center.
This investment will support Durham Tech’s efforts to build a skilled and diverse talent pipeline prepared to enter the life sciences sector. With the support of Durham County residents during the 2022 bond referendum, the College will construct a state-of-the-art training center. Novo Nordisk’s investment will help defray the cost to equip the new facility and expand the College’s offerings in both short-term workforce credentials and degree program pathways.
