The David H. Murdock Research Institute (DHMRI) was established in 2008 to serve as the core laboratory for partners of the NC Research Campus. DHMRI scientists works with corporate, academic, non-profit and government scientists worldwide who are interested in applying the institute’s advanced instrumentation to advance the fields of human health, nutrition, and agriculture. Supported in part by contributions from David H. Murdock, Chairman of Dole Foods and owner of Castle & Cooke, DHMRI promotes a level of scientific partnership never before possible.
