The Whitehead Charitable Foundation recognized that the advancement of biomedical research requires a renewable resource of outstanding academic investigators and that leading academic medical centers need the ability to attract and nurture the most promising scientists as faculty members. With their gift, the foundation further recognized that Duke University was well positioned to provide the environment and resources necessary to develop the next generation of national leaders in emerging areas of biomedical research. The Whitehead Scholars are generally junior faculty recruited to Duke who have exceptional potential for research and research training in the biomedical sciences.
