P2EP- Plant Pathways Elucidation Project
The Plant Pathways Elucidation Project, or P2EP, is a groundbreaking multi-million dollar program that engages graduate and undergraduate college students from across North Carolina in a first-of-its-kind education and research endeavor.
At its core, P2EP is a student-driven initiative that fuses plant science with human health. The program is fueled by one of the largest consortium of academic and industry organizations ever assembled at the NC Research Campus. The program teams up university scientists, industry leaders and college students who together explore plant pathways to answer why and how plants, like fruits and vegetables, benefit human health.
Science students from North Carolina colleges and universities gain research experience in a multidisciplinary, collaborative environment – one-of-a-kind scientific research opportunities – which better prepares them for successful careers.
