The Duke Funding Alert newsletter, published every Monday, provides information on all new and updated grants and fellowships added to the database during the prior week. This listserv is restricted to members of the Duke community.
The Flash Grant program aims to identify and energize the most creative ideas that exhibit early indications of commercial potential. Like a flash of inspiration, Flash Grants infuse funding at a critical early point when a small, targeted influx of funds can be crucial to shaping innovative research ideas into high potential life sciences technologies, particularly in emerging and converging life sciences sectors.
Flash Grants are used to demonstrate the disruptive potential of a technology or to move technology into the translational research phase of development.
Applicant organizations must be North Carolina universities or non-profit research institutions. Companies and individuals are not eligible to apply for Flash Grant awards.
Potential applicants at Duke should consult with Steve Murray, Assoc. Director, Foundation Relations (email@example.com) before applying.
The Cycle 2 solicitation is open to proposals in ALL AREAS of life sciences, except Class I medical devices or consumer products.
Proposals associated with technical innovations in the following topic areas are encouraged:
