On February 15, 2012, Provost Warwick Arden announced that from the more than 70 Faculty Excellence proposals that were submitted, seventeen proposals, some of which were combined, were selected for funding through the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program in the following twelve cluster areas:


Bioinformatics

An Expanded Footprint for Bioinformatics Across Campus

Abstract:

Bioinformatics is the discipline that makes the vast, diverse, and complex datasets generated by biological and medical science understandable and useful. Together with its allied Genomic Sciences graduate program, bioinformatics is one of the strongest and most successful interdisciplinary efforts at NC State. Across campus, the demand by students and faculty for bioinformatic expertise far outstrips supply. This Faculty Excellence award will help rectify this deficiency by recruiting a global leader in bioinformatics plus two junior faculty. These three scientists will bring expertise in emerging research areas, allow the bioinformatics graduate program to expand to meet the demand from qualified prospective students, and enable requests from across campus for bioinformatics collaboration to be fulfilled.

Environmental Health Science

Cluster Hire in Environmental Health Science

Abstract:

There is growing appreciation that human health is strongly influenced by environmental factors, often through complex interaction with the genome and epigenome.  However, these interactions and the specifics of environmental exposure are poorly understood. Environment is broadly defined to include all aspects of an individual’s lifestyle such as:

  • diet - including nutritive/non-nutritive dietary constituents and caloric intake;
  • environmental (air, water, food) and occupational exposure to toxicants;
  • exposure to terrestrial/solar radiation, tobacco and alcohol use; and
  • cultural and sexual behaviors.

Building on the strengths in environmental health research across the Colleges of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Veterinary Medicine, Physical and Mathematical Sciences, and Engineering, NC State established the Center for Human Health and the Environment (CHHE).  The goal of CHHE is to stimulate interdisciplinary research aimed at understanding how human health, at both the individual and population level, is impacted by environmental factors and to utilize this understanding to prevent or reduce the adverse impacts of environment factors on human health (go.ncsu.edu/chhe). This faculty cluster hire in Environmental Health Science will address population level effects of environmental factors, the link between environmental exposure and health and relationships among environmental stressors, the epigenome, and human health.
