​BIOTrain is a sector partnership of biotechnology companies, government, nonprofits, led by Montgomery College and working together to shape a technical workforce that is ready for today and tomorrow  



“We are here today to actually introduce job seekers here in Montgomery County to opportunities and careers in biotechnology, life sciences and health sciences,” said Brian Gaines, CEO, MdBio Foundation.

According to Gaines, Montgomery County is the epicenter for biotechnology in the state of Maryland.

“In Maryland, there are over 500 companies that are engaged in biotech, life sciences, health sciences, healthcare information technology, so it is a wide range of companies,” Gaines said. “There are literally thousands of jobs right here in Montgomery County as well as across the state of Maryland.”

The idea of the visit was so job seekers at the county’s One Stop Career Center could learn firsthand about this growing industry. For one, you don’t have to have a college degree in science to land a job in the biotech industry. Read more.
