The NC TraCS Institute Pilot Grant Program has announced Tuesday, October 22, 2013 as the next submission deadline date for $5k-50k pilot grant proposals. TraCS is especially interested in, and will extend priority to, proposals with a focus on one of three areas:
- Transformative Technologies investigators using genomic, proteomic or metabolomics platforms to accelerate a translational discovery toward clinical medicine.
- Drugs, Device and Diagnostics Development investigators that have identified a novel and promising drug target; with priority to proposals that address rare or orphan diseases.
- Comparative Effectiveness Research investigators focused on the study of and dissemination of clinical and translational research in broad populations.
Note that applications are not limited to those that address one of these three areas.
