Start A Research Collaboration
Collaborating with the NC Research Campus is all about finding solutions to research and product development that advance your company or organization’s goals. Options are plentiful from contracting for laboratory services to sponsoring studies or human trials to locating a research center on campus. Long-lasting collaborations with the scientists of the NC Research Campus many times start with a simple request for specific services.
The services of the NC Research Campus include:
The Bioinformatics Research Services Division of UNC Charlotte designs and develops new research and technologies for organizations on and off campus using sophisticated computational to tools.
Contract Laboratory Services
Contract laboratory services in genomics, metabolomics, proteomics, NMR, in vitro sciences, microscopy and bioinformatics are available through the David H. Murdock Research Institute.
The Appalachian State University Human Performance Laboratory specializes in exercise physiology and immunology. Their laboratory is set up with the equipment to conduct human clinical trials with trained athletes or community volunteers to measure the impact of beverages, functional foods, fruits and vegetables.
Food Safety and Post-Harvest
The NCA&T Center for Excellence in Post-Harvest Technologies has the scientific expertise to develop methodologies to reduce foodborne contaminants in foods. The NC State University Plants for Human Health Institute can provide research to develop methodologies to protect the nutritional value and increase the shelf life of fruits and vegetables post-harvest.
NC State University Plants for Human Health Institute (PHHI) operates a greenhouse complex with space for companies or organizations to rent. Through a partnership with the Piedmont Research Station, PHHI plant breeders can assist in the construct and monitoring of agricultural field trials.
Metabolism measurement and assessment is available using the UNC Chapel Hill Nutrition Research Institute’s metabolic chamber, dual-energy, x-ray absorption scanner, BodPod and a TrueOne 2400 Metabolic Measurement System, clinical services facility and metabolic research kitchen.
