Funding Agency:
Duke University

Duke University and Duke-NUS Medical School (Duke-NUS) are pleased to announce a call for proposals for collaborative research pilot projects between faculty based in Durham with those based in Singapore.

Translational research is defined as research with an aim towards human application. Specific areas of focus for Duke-NUS and its Academic Medicine partner, SingHealth, are cancer, neuroscience, cardiometabolic disorders, infectious diseases, inflammation and immunology, eye diseases, health services research, and medical technologies/bioengineering.

For each project, up to USD$100,000 will be available to the Duke PI and SGD$100,000 to the Duke-NUS PI. Awards are for one year, but a no-cost extension of an additional year would be granted upon request.
