For two decades, the annual Fashion Exposé runway show has given College of Textiles students — and the wider Triangle design community — a spotlight for their talent and tenacity.
One in every eight students in North Carolina public schools has a disability. That’s nearly 170,000 people who need the expert support of the state’s educators. But those students are also a potential wellspring of talent for the state’s STEM industries.
Generous gifts from Randy and Tiffany Ramsey bolstered the university's programs for men's basketball and equine sports medicine.
A Vaccine for Zika
A husband-wife team of biochemists at NC State is testing a one-shot vaccine that could grant lifetime immunity against the widely feared Zika virus.
NC State Fighting Zika on Multiple Fronts
NC State is fighting the worldwide outbreak of the mosquito-borne virus Zika by designing innovative, mosquito-proof fabrics; developing mathematical models that describe and predict the spread of infections; genetically engineering mosquitos to suppress their transmission of disease; and drawing attention to missed opportunities for better biotechnology regulation.
A Fashionable Response to Zika Protection
As part of a five-year collaboration between NC State’s College of Natural Resources, College of Textiles and College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, researchers are aggressively looking to find solutions to protect people living and working in locations infected with mosquito-borne illnesses.
Let’s Subtract Zika
Alun Lloyd, professor of mathematics and director of the Center for Quantitative Sciences in Biomedicine and the Biomathematics Graduate Program at NC State, is developing mathematical models to describe the spread of infections.
Engineering a New Mosquito
NC State entomologists are developing genetic systems that could replace mosquito populations with strains that have a reduced capacity for transmitting disease.
Mosquitoes, Zika and Biotech Regulation
In a new Policy Forum article in Science, NC State professor Jennifer Kuzma argues that federal authorities are missing an opportunity to revise outdated regulatory processes not fit for modern innovations in biotechnology, such as a current situation involving genetically engineered mosquitoes.
Awaiting the Opening
In August 2016, the Alumni Association caught up with Phil Freelon, who graduated from the College of Design in 1975, to see how he was feeling ahead of the grand opening of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
