Our research has a practical and lasting impact on patients. By pursuing “bench to bedside” breakthroughs, we are making great strides in fighting cancer, HIV, diabetes, heart disease, autism, cystic fibrosis, and more. We understand and share the urgency families feel when a challenge is complex and personal. Our physician-scientists are motivated by these challenges to have a positive and enduring impact in medicine and in the lives of patients.

Visit the initiatives to see how our priorities come to life and deliver life-changing benefits for people in North Carolina and beyond.
