    “The spirit of the North Campus Research Complex really embodies our future strategic direction to be an integrated, collaborative academic medical center that equally serves the three parts of our mission: patient care, research, and education. Our goal is to build connections that foster creativity, innovation and inclusion, all of which are greatly facilitated by an environment such as NCRC. The multidisciplinary teams and work across numerous departments are examples of the excellence that comes from the collaboration and connections made possible at NCRC.”

    "NCRC has become a vibrant hub of activities that showcase our commitment as a public research university to societal impact. Not only does it house interdisciplinary and translational research that ranges from health policy to connected and automated vehicles, it is also the home of our Business Engagement Center and our Office of Technology Transfer, groups that work to align our research with the needs of industry and to encourage its application to the public good."

    "In 2009, the NCRC was a blank canvas and a dream of bringing together leading research groups in medicine and engineering. Now, with a cast of more than 2,500, the NCRC has become an active scene for collaboration, targeting challenges faced by healthcare providers with new technologies that can be readily translated to clinical use.”
