MEDx Engineering, Environment, and Health 2022 Request for Proposals [Duke Internal Funding -- For Duke Faculty Only]
Duke MEDx’s purpose is to foster collaborations between faculty members from the Duke School of Medicine and the Pratt School of Engineering. With this request for proposals, we seek to catalyze inter and trans-disciplinary, early-stage and translational research that increases insight into; measures; or addresses the effects of environmental exposures on health. We also wish to encourage collaborations with the Nicholas School of the Environment.
Proposed projects must represent a new collaboration or a new research question for an existing collaboration and demonstrate the leveraging of unique skills and knowledge of all team members. Examples of the types of projects that are in scope are those that develop monitoring devices or sensors, measure and analyze environmental insults or human exposure, investigate physiological responses to environmental insults, or create solutions to ameliorate the impact of environmental stressors on human health.
Awards will typically be for up to $50,000 with a 12-month performance period. If the team requests more than $50,000 (but no greater than $75,000), the proposal must include a detailed justification and the request must be discussed with the MEDx team prior to submission. MEDx anticipates that it will award three grants.
Pre-submission inquiries are mandatory.
Deadline for full application is May 18, 2022.
The project team must have at least two and up to three Primary Investigators. While there must be a PI with an appointment in Medicine and one with an appointment in Pratt, they should be joined by a faculty member from Nicholas, or one of the Medicine or Pratt PIs should have a joint appointment in Nicholas. PIs may be regular rank or non-regular rank. If the faculty member does not have and/or requires permission to dedicate time to the project or space to conduct the research, this must be obtained prior to submission. Additionally, we strongly encourage collaborations with extramural partners. For details on how to operationalize these collaborations, please contact us, as MEDx funds cannot be provided in the form of grant support for extramural collaborators.
