An important focus of the Bioactive Natural Products Center of Excellence (BNPCE) is the development of students skilled in the varied aspects of natural product discovery, evaluation and application. Departments associated with the BNPCE are developing a natural products concentration within the major.

Research programs will be developed that take full advantage of the resources available at both The University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Undergraduate students eligible for honors programs are encouraged to participate in the BNPCE mentoring programs. Undergraduate and minority mentoring projects at ORNL are also being developed, as many of the projects within the BNPCE are consistent with the mission of the Department of Energy.

The following departments/units are associated with BNPCE:
    Ag Policy Analysis Center

   Entomology and Plant Pathology
   Plant Sciences and Landscape Systems
   UT College of Veterinary Medicine
