A study published in The Lancet Digital Health led by TraCS' and UNC School of Medicine's Emily R. Pfaff, PhD, shows how the National COVID Cohort Collaborative used XGBoost machine learning models to better define long COVID and identify potential long-COVID patients with a high degree of accuracy.
Researchers from NC State and UNC-Chapel Hill have developed an implantable biotechnology that produces and releases chimeric antigen receptor T-cells (CAR-T) for attacking cancerous tumors. This project was partially funded by a 2019 NC TraCS Translational Team Science Award.
UNC's Katrina Donahue, MD, MPH, Jacquie Halladay, MD, MPH, and Michelle Hernandez, MD, along with researchers from across the country recently posted a salient article on Health Affairs Forefront titled "The Watershed Of Practice-Based Research: Lessons And Opportunities From The COVID Pandemic."
NC TraCS has launched a new Community and Patient Advisory Board focused on promoting and supporting equity in research. The 11-member CPAB consists of community members, patients, and advocates with varied perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences.
