WELCOME TO THE CENTER FOR INTEGRATED FUNGAL RESEARCH
The goal of the Center for Integrated Fungal Research (CIFR) is to integrate all aspects of fungal research including environmental and climate initiatives, disease, agriculture, evolution, mathematical modeling, genomics and bioinformatics, and to translate knowledge from fundamental research to stakeholders, the general public, and the scientific community. CIFR will promote education and understanding of the relative contribution of global biodiversity to the beneficial and deleterious activities of fungi.
CIFR faculty member Amy Grunden was one of several NC State researchers visiting VIB in Belgium as part of the plant science partnership established between VIB and NC State University last year.
We welcome our newest CIFR faculty members: Francis de los Reyes, Professor of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering, Associate Faculty of Microbiology, and Training Faculty of Biotechnology, and University Faculty Scholar and Wei Shi, Professor in the Crop and Soil Science Department.
Learn how we are working to explore the diverse roles of fungi in the biosphere.
Learn how we plan to model, predict and manage the consequences of environmental impacts on microbes and microbial processes.
