- NC Translational and Clinical Sciences Institute
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.
- Center for Environmental Medicine, Asthma and Lung Biology
The Center for Environmental Medicine, Asthma and Lung Biology (CEMALB) is broadly concerned with environmental impacts on human health and on cardiopulmonary health in particular.
We conduct research studies involving human volunteers that are aimed at understanding the negative health effects of air pollution on the lung and heart. To learn more about our current studies contact one of our research coordinators or click on the preceding link.
