Centers and Institutes

Our laboratories, research centers and research support facilities feature cutting-edge resources and researchers to help advance important work in the biological sciences.

Bioinformatics Research Center

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.

Biological Resources Facility

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.

Center for Comparative Medicine and Translational Research

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.

Center for Human Health and the Environment

The Center for Human Health and the Environment, supported by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, coalesces more than 65 faculty members in diverse research areas who collectively work to understand the impact of the environment on human health and disease.

Center for Quantitative Sciences in Biomedicine

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.

Genomics Sciences Laboratory

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.

Mass Spectrometry Facility

The Mass Spectrometry Facility offers a variety of mass spectrometers providing analysis through an array of methods for sample introduction, ionization and mass measurement.

Southeast Climate Science Center

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.

W.M. Keck Center for Behavioral Biology

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.
