TraCS Team Science is seeking to assist UNC researchers with the formation and development of multidisciplinary research teams focused on tackling challenging problems in clinical or translational medicine through the new ACTeR program.

Support is provided through a combination of competitively reviewed graduated direct funding and logistical support.

Phase 2 provides up to $50,000 and up to 0.5 FTE Project Manager support for up to 12 months to support the generation of preliminary data and grant application preparation.

Phase 2 submission due date: Wednesday, March 16, 2022
