Building Teams

We build high-functioning research teams to address problems posed by specific funding opportunities or program announcements, or in response to an investigator’s question or problem.

NC TraCS-initiated Teams

Typically, potential team members are recruited by the NC TraCS Team Science Resource to develop approaches to address problems outlined in specific funding opportunities and facilitate conversations relating the purpose and objectives of the funding opportunity announcements.

We facilitate conversations to help teams develop specific aims. We provide teams with project management support and connection to NC TraCS services as needed throughout the writing process.

Though we recruit a number of individuals to join any team, we also welcome others who are interested in working with our teams. Ask about our ongoing research teams.

Investigator-initiated Teams

NC TraCS Team Science also initiates teams at the request of individual investigators. We facilitate these teams toward specific aims, research objectives or other endpoints defined by you, and provide project management support and connection to NC TraCS services as needed.

We will also work with you to develop funding strategies for your proposal ideas. Request help developing a research team.
