BME assistant professor Rahima Benhabbour, who is also adjunct professor at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, was recently featured in the NC TraCS introduction video, after receiving support from the Institute to develop 3D-printed intravaginal rings for disease prevention and treatment in women. NC TraCS is a service that helps researchers at UNC-Chapel Hill and across the U.S. with education, funding and connections. In the video, Dr. Benhabbour explains how the interaction with the NC Tracs staff was a springboard for her career—in particular the guidance she received from a regulatory expert to understand what kind of pathway to go through.
The NIH-funded NC TraCS Institute at UNC-Chapel Hill is a Clinical and Translational Science hub founded as a service to the research community—guiding investigators and study teams through clinical trials and regulatory approval, all the way to implementation in patient care.
