ORIED Announces Inaugural GRIP Winners
Four NC State research teams have been selected as the inaugural winners of the Game-Changing Research Incentive Program (GRIP), a three-year, $2.3 million seed-funding initiative designed to stimulate interdisciplinary and collaborative research in the Triangle.
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.
Research Associates Some Pesticides With Respiratory Wheeze in Farmers
New research connects several pesticides commonly used by farmers with both allergic and non-allergic wheeze, which can be a sensitive marker for early airway problems.
