Established in November 2022

The Trauma Research and Combat Casualty Care Collaborative (TRC4) is a research entity singularly focused on addressing the critical need for improved trauma care in the United States. The unique collaboration, established by the UT Board of Regents and funded in part by Texas lawmakers, will operate out of UT Health San Antonio and serve all UT academic and health institutions.

Initial Collaborative Partners: University of Texas System and the Department of Defense

Prevalence of Trauma and Need for Research

Despite its prevalence, trauma receives disproportionately less funding. Trauma injuries are the primary cause of mortality and permanent disability among individuals under 44 years of age.

Based at UT Health San Antonio and Partnered with UT System Institutions

TRC4 serves as a unique collaborative entity seeking to catalyze transformative research efforts into trauma care.

Apply for Funding

TRC4 funds groundbreaking trauma research, product development, and preventative measures through various grants and initiatives. Prospective applicants are encouraged to engage with funding opportunities and submit their proposals through the designated online application receipt system. By fostering a collaborative environment and investing in innovative projects, TRC4 aims to enhance the capabilities of trauma care, ultimately leading to improved outcomes.

Note: The deadline for applications for the 2024 TRC4 grants and initiatives has passed. If you were unable to apply, please sign up for TRC4 news to stay up to date about next year’s application process.
