Strategic Initiatives TraCS $5K-$50K

In 2014, we introduced three Strategic Initiatives aimed at harnessing the existing strengths, energy and expertise of UNC and RTI.

Together, we offer investigators a no-cost, personalized mentoring program with highly specialized expertise in three specific areas of translational research. We are especially interested in proposals with a focus on one of these areas:

  1. Transformative Technologies
  2. Comparative Effectiveness Research
  3. Drugs, Devices & Diagnostics Development

For 1 and 2:
Use the TraC$5K-50K Program Guidelines and TraC$5K-50K Pilot Grant Online Application Form.


For 3:
Drugs, Devices and Diagnostics Development (4D), we are accepting proposals to progress innovations through the development process toward an eventual commercial endpoint — being either the launching of a company or licensing to an established company — for investigators that have identified novel and promising drugs, devices or diagnostics.
