STUDENTfacturED – Year 1

Presenter:  Dr. Vivian Ngan-Winward, Salt Lake City Community College, Salt Lake City, UT

STUDENTfacturED (a NSF ATE-funded project) is currently being developed at SLCC to provide a contextualized practical experience to reinforce student learning in the Biomanufacturing Program. STUDENTfacturED will be a student-run contract manufacturing organization that makes products for instructional use in our college and local high school biotechnology classes – products that are Made by Students, For Students.

After earning her Ph.D., Dr. Vivian Ngan-Winward spent 9 years in academic research prior to entering the biotech industry. Her 7+ years of industry experience includes work as a scientist in both R&D and regulatory affairs. She returned to academia in 2008 to develop and direct a new Biomanufacturing training program (funded by a DOLoL Community-Based Job Training grant).
