The School of Medicine Office for Faculty, in partnership with the Office of Physician-Scientist Development, is now accepting applications for the Fund to Retain Clinical Scientists at Duke. Established by a grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and supported by Dean Mary Klotman, the Fund provides supplements of up to $30,000-$50,000 to clinician-scientists with significant caregiving responsibilities. Supplements are for 1 year, with the possible option to apply for a second year. This application cycle is for funding from January 1-December 31, 2022.

Fund supplements are designed to address the critical challenge of working to establish research independence during periods when caregiving needs may be least flexible. Awards can be used in a variety of ways to support the applicant’s scholarly work. Possible uses of funds include:

  • Research support personnel (e.g. clinical research coordinator or technician)
  • Duke Office of Clinical Research (DOCR) services
  • Biostatistical support
  • Other “extra hands” support as proposed by the applicant

Applications are due October 5, 2021.
