GTI Goes Green with Nagoya Leadership Program

The Nagoya Green Leadership Program was an intensive two-week training program for doctoral students from Nagoya University in Japan that provides exposure to research and industry in various bio-science fields in North Carolina. Students also enjoyed an immersive American culture experience in and around NC State University.


In addition to training workshops on leadership, presentation skills and poster presentation development, participants visited various companies in the Research Triangle Park related to biological research and development. Company visits included Syngenta, Monsanto, Bayer, and the North Carolina Biotechnology Center.

The participants also got to experience authentic line dancing with the Cultural Exchange Network (CENet) at NC State and visited neighboring college campuses. They even spent time in an American family home during their stay.

They traveled to Washington, D.C. to meet with a technology transfer specialist at the National Institute of Health, and while they were there, took a little time to take in the sights.

It was a busy but extremely successful two-week program. The students experienced so much during their short stay. We hated to see them go but can’t wait to see all that they accomplish in the future!
