North Carolina State University said it plans to up its faculty by two at the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannopolis.
The scientists, Slavko Komarnytsky and Xu “Sirius” Li, will work in the Plants for Human Health Institute. They will research how fruits and vegetables enhance human health and work to breed healthier varieties of fresh produce, such as blueberries, broccoli and strawberries.
Komarnytsky and Li employment will bring NCSU’s research faculty positions at the Kannapolis campus to seven, half of the projected positions planned for the research branch of the institute.
