Duke Global Health Institute – Duke-NUS

Funding Agency:
Duke University

The Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) and Duke-NUS Medical School (Duke-NUS) invite proposals for collaborative research projects that address key global health concerns. Through this joint RFP, DGHI will provide pilot funds to interdisciplinary teams led by faculty from these two Institutions to stimulate new collaborations. Proposal teams must include at least one DGHI faculty (regular rank and affiliates), and at least one Duke-NUS faculty. Collaborators outside of these two Institutions may be eligible to be co-investigators if the research takes place at location of mutual interest (subject to final approval).

Proposals may focus on the following Duke-NUS and SDGHI research priorities: Global Health including health policy and systems, global health innovation, clinical system enhancement, regulatory/legal frameworks, outbreak preparedness, pathogen genomics; Emerging Infectious Diseases, Health Services and Systems Research. Any deviation from these themes should be discussed in advance to ensure proposal ideas meet the GH research objectives for DGHI and Duke-NUS. Novel ideas that will address health equity are encouraged. All projects should demonstrate that preliminary findings may lead to a potential path of financial support by way of external funding. Through this joint effort, we seek to expand upon our partnership and invest in sustainable relationships; therefore, applications will be elevated according to strength of the strategic engagement on theme-based topics.

Application Deadline: January 5, 2024
