Being just 30 miles from Research Triangle Park, our research program enables cooperation with other academic and biomedical research facilities. Our students and faculty have the option to learn and participate in several research opportunities.
Facilities and equipment
With over 40,000 square feet of research facilities, the Vyas Anatomy Lab, Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine Lab and the Simulation Center feature patient and training rooms/tables, surgical and emergency treatment suites, robotic and virtual simulators and a multipurpose room — all utilized for student and faculty training.
Some of our resources include:
- Biomedical imaging
- Confocal and inverted microscopes
- Spectrofluorometer and dual beam spectrophotometer
- Sorvall high speed centrifuge
- Beckman ultracentrifuge
- Gene sequencers
Additionally, an atomic absorbance spectrophotometer, infrared spectrophotometers, UV/visible spectrophotometers, NMR spectrometer, GC and HPLC chromatographic systems are available. Cell and tissue culture resources include hoods, carbon dioxide incubators, freezers, pure water systems, ice machines, liquid nitrogen tanks and autoclave ovens.
Clinical research is integrated into our healthcare centers, medical offices, affiliates and the community.
