Call for Proposals – Translational Research Grants from NC Biotech Center


Deadline: Wednesday, February 1, 2023 (noon)

The Translational Research Grant (TRG) program funds projects that explore commercial applications or initiate the early commercial development of university-held life sciences inventions.

The goals of the TRG program include:

  • Transforming research discoveries into product-focused translational research development
  • Generating data that addresses important product development milestones, addresses the concerns of potential licensees or investors, or de-risks the technology for a specific commercial application
  • Enabling strategic “go/no-go” decision-making regarding further technology development or the pursuit of intellectual property protection
  • Enabling technology licensing efforts by the university
  • Establishing goal-oriented partnerships between university scientists, product development professionals, and key stakeholders

Applicants must be researchers employed by North Carolina-based universities or nonprofit research institutes. Technical projects may be conducted at awardee institutions or outsourced to contract research organizations.

Up to $100,000 may be requested for technical and business development activities. An additional $10,000 supplement is available to support a project manager if one is unavailable through the applicant institution.

Pre-submission consultations are strongly recommended.

Award Announcements: June 2023
