The North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences (NC TraCS) Institute at UNC-CH is one of 60 medical research institutions working together as a national consortium to improve the way biomedical research is conducted across the country. The consortium, funded through the NIH Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA), shares a common vision to reduce the time it takes for laboratory discoveries to become treatments for patients, and to engage communities in clinical research efforts. It also is fulfilling the critical need to train a new generation of clinical researchers.
To achieve these goals, TraCS offers a number of programs and services to assist researchers through all phases of the process of translating basic science discoveries into meaningful health advances.
The School of Medicine Office of Research provides information about Funding Agencies, Preparation Assistance & Forms, Protocol Offices, Core Facilities, and the NIH Roadmap.
UNC Core Facilities offer a wide range of services to the research community, including cutting edge technologies, high end instrumentation, technical support, and education. Our facilities are committed to enhancing and expanding the collaborative capabilities of research at UNC-Chapel Hill.
The SPO's overall responsibilities include three primary functions: The pre audit review and analysis of all designated grant proposals/contracts; review and approval of the School’s Service Contracts and Student Agreements; Training & Guidance in Proposal Development/Processing.
Barbara Entwisle is vice chancellor for research (VCR) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
