Posted September 21, 2017

Aaron Levine, associate professor in the School of Public Policy, holds an important role in the nearly $20 million engineering research center (ERC) recently awarded to Georgia Tech and a consortium of other universities to advance cell manufacturing.  Levine will serve as Co-Director for Engineering Workforce Development for the new center. In this role, Levine will work with colleagues across campus as well as at the University of Georgia, University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez Campus, University of Wisconsin-Madison and other university and industry partners to implement innovative educational approaches to help strengthen the cell manufacturing workforce.  CMaT’s projected workforce development programs include classes co-taught to graduate students at all four primary institutions, the integration of new cell manufacturing modules into undergraduate classes and capstones, and innovative partnerships with local technical college systems.

Levine will also work with School of Public Policy students to conduct ethics and policy research related to cell manufacturing.
