NC State – NC TraCS Collaborative Pilot Grant Program

The North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences (NC TraCS) Institute combines the research strengths, resources and opportunities of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus and partner institutions NC State University in Raleigh, North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, and RTI International in the Research Triangle Park.

Each year NC TraCS offers a number of pilot grants that require at least one PI from NC State. To see the real-life opportunities and benefits these grants create, we spoke with three NC State PIs who shared their experiences with the program.
