singleton 100x70 I felt like the conglomeration of intellectual challenges being faced here and the kind of smart people you interact with would make me raise my game.

lee_andrew 100x70 It’s a really good mix of high-level science and a pleasant atmosphere for doing science. Those two don’t always go together. When you have high-level science, sometimes it makes it so competitive that it’s unpleasant to be in that atmosphere. It’s more cooperative, more collaborative here.

kashuba 100x70 After I interviewed both here [at the School of Pharmacy] and with the School of Medicine, I realized that there was multidisciplinary translational research occurring here, and that was not happening at any of the other universities that I had interviewed at.

Industry Collaboration

Opportunities for collaborative research at the School aren’t limited to within academia. The School's faculty are encouraged to form ties with the private sector. The School’s location in the Research Triangle Park makes it easy to work with companies from around the world. The 7,000-acre RTP, the largest research park in the United States, is home to 132 research- and development-related organizations spanning a wide variety of fields, and more than 80 percent of the employees in the RTP work for multinational corporations. Our faculty have affiliations with GlaxoSmithKline, RTI International, PPD, Quintiles, and many other companies and organizations in the area, and some have started their own spin-off companies.
