The $36.5 million Complex Carbohydrate Research Center (CCRC) was the first science research project at the University of Georgia to be planned, financed and developed on a privatized basis by the UGA Real Estate Foundation. With extensive experience in both private commercial development and public/institutional projects, Carter was selected as the program manager for the facility. The facility includes the country’s largest commercial nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer and serves as a national model for future research developments. The state-of-the-art facility houses close to 240 researchers and includes 30 laboratories with approximately 80 fume hoods, an analytical area containing the nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectrometer suites, medical glycoscience and plant suites, service and training laboratories, plant growth chambers, environmental/ cold rooms, and an animal holding facility.
