New requirements for funded pilot grants

The NC TraCS Institute is funded through a CTSA grant from NIH's National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). NCATS recently instituted a new policy requiring the review and approval of all TraCS pilot grants involving human subjects research prior to TraCS funds being released. Therefore, if your proposal is funded and involves human subjects research, TraCS will require additional documentation to send to NCATS. NCATS expects to complete their review in less than 30 days.
