As a member of the Clinical Translational Sciences Awards consortium (CTSA), the NC TraCS Institute seeks to create new programs and pathways to facilitate clinical and translational research at UNC and throughout North Carolina.
The Clinical and Translational Research Center offers investigators a variety of research support services, including access to inpatient and outpatient examination rooms, a staff of highly-skilled research professionals, an investigators laboratory, nutrition research support, and an oral health research facility. In addition, CTRC staff can assist you with study budgeting, letters of support, and research coordinator orientation.
The Clinical and Translational Research Center improves the health and well-being of the people of North Carolina and beyond by ensuring an optimal professional environment for clinical innovation, quality care, resource stewardship and research leadership.
All publications, press releases, or other documents that result from the utilization of any NC TraCS Institute resources are required to credit the CTSA grant and comply with NIH Public Access Policy (submission to PubMed Central).
Researchers can use Research Central to find the latest research information regarding the UNC Health Care Epic Electronic Health Record, UNC Clinical Research Management System (CRMS), and OnCore management system for UNC Oncology research.
Research Central serves as a portal to access the CTRC resources, advertise studies, and discover educational groups such as the UNC Network for Clinical Research Professionals, training opportunities and resources. The UNC CTSA Clinical Research Management System (UNC CRMS) application links separate research support systems on campus. The CRMS helps clinical research teams manage studies throughout the lifecycle by completing pre-study submissions to the Office of Clinical Trials, Investigational Drug Services, and Integrated Billing Office.
