According to a statement, Tuesday’s “Oprah” is dedicated to health and aging.

Various scientists at the research center, which is being backed heavily by North Carolina businesses and the UNC System ( Raleigh Web Design ), were interviewed by “Oprah.” So was Murdock, 85, who will appear on the show to discuss his lifestyle habits.

The Murdock interview includes a bicycle ride on Murdock’s farm and “an impromptu trip to Costco,” Dole Food says in a statement.

Murdock established the Research Campus in Kannapolis to further advances in biotechnology and health research. The Triangle’s biggest research universities all have a presence there; so do companies including Red Hat (NYSE: RHT), PPD Inc. (Nasdaq: PPDI) and LabCorp (NYSE: LH).
