The Life Sciences First Year program provides all freshman students a more streamlined and helpful entry into the life sciences majors.
Researchers in these centers are conducting some of the most advanced work in their fields
The W.M. Keck Center for Behavioral Biology provides a multidisciplinary environment for interdepartmental training and collaborative research in the fundamental principles that govern animal behavior.
The Bioinformatics Research Center works to develop the theoretical framework to extract knowledge from biological data, and to solve real-world problems in human health, global food security and bioenergy.
The Biological Resources Facility is a centralized site for the humane care of research animals. It accommodates the research and teaching needs of researchers from NC State, industry and governmental agencies.
The Center for Comparative Medicine and Translational Research promotes scientific discovery and facilitates its clinical application to achieve the goal of improving the health of animals and humans.
The Center for Human Health and the Environment works to understand the impact of the environment on human health and disease.
The Center for Quantitative Sciences in Biomedicine catalyzes and facilitates research projects in the biomedical sciences where success requires integrated collaborations among scientists in the quantitative and biological disciplines.
The Genomics Sciences Laboratory provides sequencing and support services to the NC State and broader scientific communities on everything from project planning to DNA or RNA extraction to sequencing.
The Mass Spectrometry Facility offers a variety of mass spectrometers providing analysis through an array of methods for sample introduction, ionization and mass measurement.
The Southeast Climate Science Center was established by the U.S. Department of the Interior to address the needs of natural and cultural partners for climate science in the Southeastern United States.
