The funds raised by TCIN will be used to help support research on radically advanced and emerging technologies that will result in the identification of potential target and therapeutics for diseases. Applications will be solicited from outstanding scientists, reviewed and the SAB will select meritorious applications to fund to help support the goals of the organization.
