This funding mechanism supports research that will advance translational science, the discipline focused on understanding and addressing the scientific and organizational challenges underlying each stage of the translational process.

TraCS is interested in projects which develop, test and/or disseminate new methods and best practices in translational research including implementation science.

These projects must be developed in collaboration with one of the NC TraCS Resources, Services or Strategic Initiatives. The project should be either applicable to a number of ongoing or planned projects at NC TraCS partner institutions (UNC, RTI or N.C. A&T) or potentially developed into a collaborative effort across 3 or more CTSAs.

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.
