Carolina’s more than $1.1 billion research enterprise has made us one of the most innovative universities in the world. Our success is due to our world-class faculty, researchers and students who work every day to build Carolina’s unique culture of collaboration. This essential quality has put our interdisciplinary teams of faculty and researchers in the position to make leading-edge discoveries. As Chancellor of this great university — and as a scientist and researcher — I witness and participate in this collaboration every day.
Carolina is, at its core, an institution grounded in the principles of convergent science. Convergent science is employed in our labs and classrooms on a daily basis to drive scientific breakthroughs and commercial progress — from discovering novel ways to deliver cancer treatments to utilizing nanotechnology to remove water contaminants.
The UNC Institute for Convergent Science expands on our culture of collaboration to bring life-changing solutions to market faster than ever before, transforming lives for generations to come. Now is the time to think about the change we want to see in the world and consider that change achievable.
Together, we are making history in North Carolina and beyond.
