The NC Research Campus (NCRC) is located in the city of Kannapolis, just north of Charlotte. Centered on the advancement of nutrition, agriculture and human health, scientists from universities, industry, government and non-profit organizations are finding new ways to promote healthy lifestyles and to prevent, treat and cure the most prevalent diseases of our times like cancer, diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer’s and other diet and lifestyle-related disorders.
Research combines multiple scientific focuses spanning fruits, vegetables, grains, herbs, bioactive compounds, exercise physiology, post-harvest physiology to brain and fetal development. All of the campus’ partners and collaborators, on and off campus, have access to the support of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s Bioinformatics Services Division and the David H. Murdock Research Institute (DHMRI), which houses the largest and most advanced collection of scientific equipment in genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, light microscopy and NMR. Opportunities are unlimited to form research collaborations, use DHMRI’s equipment, host conferences or join the campus.
