Biotechnology research at N.C. A&T

Biotechnology research at North Carolina A&T applies our historic strengths as a land-grant institution -- agriculture, engineering and technology -- with an interdisciplinary focus on today's great challenges in animal and plant science, food processing, environmental science, and human health. 

Among our major initiatives are:

  • NSF Engineering Research Center for Revolutionizing Metallic Biomaterials: Biomedical engineering and nanobio research to advance cardiovascular, orthopedic and craniofacial medicine through the development of biocompatible and biodegradable implants for reconstruction and regeneration.
  • Center for Excellence in Post-Harvest Technologies (North Carolina Research Campus, Kannapolis): Adding value to agricultural commodities by finding new ways to make food safer, extend shelf life, and preserve health promoting nutrients.
  • NSF CREST Bioenergy Center: Fundamental research toward the development of advanced thermochemical biomass conversion technology for the efficient, economic production of liquid transportation fuels and hydrogen.
  • Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (operated with the University of North Carolina at Greensboro): Researchers' interests include nanobioelectronics; neural interfaces; nanotechnology tools for disease diagnostics and regenerative medicine; and computational modeling of bio and nano systems, interfaces, and interactions.

In addition, departments throughout the campus are pursuing such initiatives as biomedical research (Animal Science, Biology, and others), environmental remediation and sustainable infrastructure (Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering), genetic and evolutionary computing (Computer Science), and biological engineering (Natural Resources and Environmental Design), to name a few.
