Center for Brain Metastasis -- Translating Duke Health Call for Proposals : Immunology [Duke Internal Funding -- For Duke Faculty Only]

Funding Agency:
Duke University

Duke Health is pleased to announce its first Translating Duke Health call for proposals for innovative approaches to supporting immune health. This RFP is designed to invest in transformative areas of research and technology where Duke Health can have the greatest impact on human health.  

Translating Duke Health is one of the signature programs animating Advancing Health Together, our Duke Health Strategic Planning Framework. Translating Duke Health is a multiyear, multidisciplinary program to capitalize on our collective strengths in research, clinical care and population health to address major health challenges. Additional information about Translating Duke Health is available at

For this call, we are focusing on new approaches that could bear on our understanding of transplantation tolerance, tumors, autoimmunity, and protective immunity. Collaborative projects across disciplines are encouraged. Applicants are also encouraged to take advantage of available biobank samples and Duke Core Facilities, and attend the TDH Immunology & Transplant Initiative: Duke Human Biobanking Symposium on December 15, 2017.

We are particularly interested in proposals that would build new collaborations and/or new teams and might lead to extended productive (and NIH-funded) collaborations. 

We plan to make up to three awards of up to $100,000 for one year.
