Transforming Medicine and Health Through Scientific Research
The Duke University School of Medicine strives to transform medicine and health, locally and globally, through innovative scientific research and rapid translation of breakthrough discoveries.
This research extends from the bench to the bedside -- from the basics of biology to the best practices in caring for the wide range of human diseases.
Our roster of research programs, centers and institutes is long and deep, and includes expertise in clinical research, genomic sciences, cardiac and cancer care, vaccine development, aging and integrative health.
This impressive list of Research Firsts demonstrates how often Duke researchers have contributed to pushing the boundaries of medical knowledge.
- DukeQuEST - Quality and Excellence in Scientific Translation - The goal of this Duke School of Medicine initiative is to ensure the scientific quality and integrity of research that lays the foundation for human studies.
- Interdisciplinary Colloquia - The SoM offers several ongoing interdisciplinary colloquia which bring together investigators from the clinical, basic and translational research arenas
- Omics Research IOM Document - This Duke Administration Document was provided to the IOM Committee Evaluating Omics Research
- Research Support Offices - These various offices support basic science and/or clinical research
- The Minors in Lab Policy is a new policy, adopted by Duke, that establishes safeguards for children under the age of 18 who participate under the direction of faculty in activities within any Duke University laboratory. Compliance with the policy requires the completion of a Participation Agreement.
- in order to minimize potential exposures to hazardous materials and/or animals, the Duke University Safety Committee and the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee have additional requirements
related to the safety of minors as well as animal use guidelines
