Rivals on court, Duke and UNC collaborate around the world

It's basketball
season and when Duke and North Carolina battle on the court, it's among the
greatest rivalries in sports. Off the court, though, the two schools join
forces often to tackle challenges ranging from global warming to studies of the brain.

UNC University
Relations created this chart to illustrate some of the many academic
collaborations between Blue Devils and Tar Heels. Duke Today is pleased to
reprint it here. Our colleagues down the road still wear the wrong shade of
blue, but we're lucky to have each other as neighbors.
