The Comparative Medicine Institute fosters innovative research to improve both animal and human health by supporting front-line, multidisciplinary research in North Carolina. The generosity of alumni and friends helps safeguard the institute’s ability to support student training, extend research opportunities to talented students and faculty from basic science and clinical disciplines, and facilitate the development of new treatments for human and animal diseases.


Gifts to the CMI One Medicine Fund gives current students and faculty the opportunity to use their skills and creativity to make game-changing discoveries. These critical funds enable the institute to address top priorities with the greatest flexibility.

Resources from the CMI One Medicine Fund support a far-reaching membership base, including students, postdoctoral researchers and faculty from NC State, Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill. With your help and generosity, we can continue to address urgent clinical needs for both humans and animals, and provide a world-class research environment for all our members.
