Research Matters

Scientific inquiry improves our everyday lives. It also impacts our collective future.

Science Is a Service

At NC State, we pursue practical solutions to real-world problems that affect each of us and society at large. Our expert faculty use science to take on grand-scale challenges, from protecting the global food supply to using regenerative medicine to achieve better patient outcomes. But their research also delves into the seemingly ordinary and familiar world around us, even the things we take for granted. It’s why we believe that science is for everyone — and that everyone benefits from it.

In this ongoing series, our leading researchers explain what they do and why it matters.
