  • Presentation to the UNC Department of Allied Health Sciences, October, 2018
  • UNC's NC TraCS Institute ("TraCS"):  An NIH grant-funded institute serving the research community with a mission to accelerate discoveries into interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public. Our aims are to develop and support a skilled research workforce, engage diverse stakeholders as active partners, develop innovative methods to address barriers to translating scientific findings, and incorporate cutting-edge informatics tools and methodologies in every aspect of translational research.

Also see the September 1, 2020, TraCS News Article, Asking the Right Questions, in which Clare Harrop, PhD, describes the TraCS $2K pilot award as a gateway that opened doors to many other opportunities.
