The Higher Education Works Foundation recently interviewed Dr. Carol Folt, Chancellor at the University of North Carolina, about the current state of UNC research and what excites her about it. Chancellor Folt’s first response? “[There has been a push in the last three years in areas like] Biomedical– where it’s a biomedical juggernaut.” She also praised the UNC Lineberger Cancer Center, which partners with many BME faculty to produce leading therapeutic research. “We’ve become a real innovation center,” she says, “with students, faculty, staff, the community all interested. We’ve seen powerful results.” You can watch the video interview here.
Kudos to all of our faculty, staff, students, and volunteers for making our Department one of the best!
