NC TraCS/NC State Collaborative Pilot Grants

NC State University (NCSU) is now a partner in the UNC CTSA grant, along with UNC Chapel Hill, RTI and N.C. A&T. NC TraCS is partnering with NCSU's Office of Research Innovation and Economic Development (ORIED) and the Comparative Medicine Institute (CMI) to promote interdisciplinary inter-institutional collaborative research teams.

NC TraCS and NCSU are particularly interested in interdisciplinary research that focuses on, but is not limited to, collaborations involving:

  • Functional tissue engineering/regenerative medicine
  • Development and utilization of large animal models for translational medicine
  • Manufacturing and scale up of biomaterials
  • Evaluating the potential of naturally occurring disease models for therapeutic discovery
  • Development and testing of medical devices
  • Improvement of imaging technologies
  • Antimicrobial resistance
  • Zoonotic diseases
  • Tissue-on-chip model systems
  • Biomedical data analytics and modeling of clinical/environmental interactions
  • Patient data de-identification and cybersecurity
  • Biomedical nanomaterials and nanotechnologies
  • Next generation drug manufacturing
