Carolina’s research touches the lives of people in every part of North Carolina. From Alamance to Yancey, our researchers study the specific issues impacting people in their county. We investigate the spread of disease by ticks and mosquitoes, we develop new methods of extracting contamination from water sources, and we track variations in local ecosystems caused by climate change. In addition to advancing science and influencing policy, UNC-Chapel Hill’s research enterprise invests in all communities and provides jobs to North Carolinians. The dedication, creativity, and passion of our researchers translates into positive impact for the entire Tar Heel state.
