Faculty researchers working in clinical and translational science have until Oct. 9 to apply for funding through a pilot grant program designed to support innovative and collaborative research initiatives.

NC TraCS, the North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences Institute, combines the strengths of research powerhouses NC State, the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill, North Carolina A&T State University and RTI International, serving as a centralized portal to give research personnel access to valuable resources and services.

View the program’s request for applications to see the current funding priorities and guidelines.

Keep in mind that this is a matching program; as a full partner, NC State is required to match all funding dollar for dollar. Principal investigators should seek matching funds from their college, department or center/institute.

The Office of Research and Innovation has more information about NC TraCS online, including examples of recent projects funded through the program.
