The Bioinformatics Research Center (BRC) offers space for both wet and dry laboratories and includes core facilities for molecular biology, proteomics, and computing. Additional genomics and proteomics core facilities are available through an UNC Charlotte partnership with the Carolinas Medical Center. The BRC has also taken a leadership role in developing Bioinformatics programs in collaboration with the developers of the North Carolina Research Campus, a billion-dollar, 350-acre research park that will be home to the research programs of a large number of private biotechnology companies as well as university and medical research programs.
The Charlotte Visualization Center strives to develop and promote the science of visual analytics and to advance interactive visualization as an integrative discipline that is indispensable for attacking key real world applications. The Center is one of five regional centers across the United States supported by the Department of Homeland Security and National Visualization and Analytics Center. The VisCenter is also a formal partner in conjunction with two of the Department of Homeland Security's Centers of Excellence.
The Complex Systems Institute (CSI) brings together academia, industry, and federal agencies to advance computing simulation, analysis, and modeling. Tools developed by CSI members help analysts model infrastructure and social networks, visualize and understand how individual networks behave and understand multiple-network interdependency behavior, including second- and third-order effects and unintended consequences.
HInORA’s mission is to enhance the health informatics and outcomes research capacity of CHHS through collaboration of investigators from diverse research foci (basic science to epidemiology) within the college, university, and community partners in order to discover research opportunities, effectively share resources and seek funding for research that advances the knowledge and skills of the disciplines.
The Health Informatics Lab focuses on methods and systems that turn health data into health knowledge. The lab is particularly interested in applied aspects of health informatics research. Our current projects include the development of a rapid learning system for knowledge guided radiation therapy planning, the development of predictive models for patients with elevated risk of catastrophic cardiovascular events following cancer treatment, and the study of models and methods for representing health data and health care knowledge.
The Smart Mobile Innovation Lab (SMIL) is a unique collaboration and education space designed to foster research collaborations and innovations in the area of mobile computing across UNC Charlotte. The lab provides a physical space, a community and process that serves to support and accelerate research and operational collaborations and research activities. The lab is available for innovators from all of UNC Charlotte's colleges and schools. The lab works with innovators on creating proof of concept solutions targeting seed collaborations with the goal of testing out potential ideas and seeking external funding.
The Innovation Lab is a key component of DSI’s strategy for collaboration, visualization, and presentation capabilities for our students/interns, researchers, industry partners, and the Charlotte entrepreneurial community. Innovation Lab will be new collaboration space which will allow researchers, interns, and company personnel to work on large-scale projects as part of multi-disciplinary project teams. The project team approach is incorporated into the DSI degree programs. This will allow industry partners to define projects that are more complex and require skill sets from multiple domains, resulting in real world understanding of the use and value of data science analytics techniques. With teams bringing multiple talents and backgrounds, the work streams can move forward in parallel delivering robust results in shorter time-frames.
Project Mosaic provides research support to investigators in the areas of collaborative planning, development, and design of research projects, research design, and analysis. We strive for the highest possible level of scholarship in social sciences, within a space of research practice that is evidence-based, relevant to contemporary human societies and dares to leverage the full potential of varied and large data streams and innovative analytical research designs.
