Transdisciplinary Pilot Projects

In addition to the four main research projects, TREC@WUSTL funds one-year developmental pilot research projects that focus on priorities within our TREC center. These studies are designed to provide an avenue for introducing and integrating new investigators and innovative technologies and methodologies into TREC@WUSTL.
