Application Deadline: NCBiotech Translational Research Grant Program

January 31 @ 12:00 pm

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 will be made in June 2024.
