The NASA Specialized Center of Research and Training (NSCORT) in Gravitational Biology was established at N.C. State University in 1996. The multi-year grant was awarded to N.C. State University, Wake Forest University, the Dynamac Corporation and Baruch College (City University of NY) in a competitive process (NRA 94-OLMSA-04). This group centers its efforts on research and training involving "Calcium, Signaling and Gravity: An Integrated Molecular, Cellular and Physiological Approach to Plant Gravitational Biology".

Since its inception, the NSCORT has supported research for 14 Project Leaders, 20 postdoctoral and graduate students and dozens of undergraduate students at three universities and one private company. This has resulted in over 175 research publications/published abstracts. Additionally, the NSCORT developed a vibrant education and outreach program that has reached over 6,000 teachers, students and members of the general public. The NC State University NSCORT has become internationally recognized for its contributions to plant gravitational and space biology research bringing wide respect to NASA and to the discipline of gravitational biology through articles in peer reviewed journals, invited lectures and reports by leading media organizations.
