North Carolina Research Campus

The North Carolina Research Campus will provide an exceptional opportunity for the translation of science into beneficial, real-life applications. As part of the Research Campus, the NRI’s work will be complemented by partnerships with the other schools on the campus such as North Carolina State University, Duke University, UNC-Charlotte, UNC-Greensboro, North Carolina A&T, and North Carolina Central. The North Carolina Research Campus will offer researchers a world-class core laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment. LabCorp, Dole Nutrition, other biotechnology companies, and scientists from industry will operate from the campus, along with a state-of-the-art health department. A venture capital fund has been set up to attract promising biotech firms to the Research Campus.
