Projects must demonstrate high translational potential with a clear path to subsequent grant support in order to receive the award.
Dr. Neeta Vora, associate professor in the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, has been awarded a $50,000 Duke/UNC CTSA Consortium Collaborative Translational Research Grant in partnership with Dr. Erica Davis of Duke University.
Drs. Vora and Davis’ application is titled “Genetic and Functional Dissection of Congenital Anomalies of the Kidney & Urinary Tract.”
This grand program is designed to encourage and facilitate novel clinical and translational research that applies or accelerates discovery into testing in clinical or population settings.
Proposed projects must involve a lead investigator from Duke University and a lead investigator from UNC-Chapel Hill. Proposals are encouraged from new teams of investigators from different disciplines. Applicants at each institution must have a full-time faculty appointment, and projects must demonstrate high translational potential.
