For over a decade, the Biomedical Research Infrastructure Center (BRIC) has been conducting and strengthening biomedical research capacity at Winston-Salem State University. Supported since 1996 by a grant from The Research Infrastructure in Minority Institutions Program (RIMI) of the National Institutes of Health, BRIC enhances WSSU's biomedical research infrastructure by:

  • providing a strong research-training environment to serve the needs of faculty and students at WSSU
  • conducting original and innovative basic laboratory, behavioral, clinical, and population-based research aimed at eliminating health disparities
  • leveraging WSSU's long-standing community partnerships to translate health services research outcomes into improvements for Winston-Salem's sizeable minority population and others throughout the 12- county Piedmont Triad
  • creating opportunities for junior faculty to pursue research interests in minority health or health disparities by supporting feasibility research projects
  • supporting faculty development activities such as workshops, seminars and institutional research awards
  • developing individual faculty expertise and credibility
  • conducting independent research that is positioned to receive independent R01 funding support.
