Announcing the Genomic Technologies Pilot Grant Winners


The Duke School of Medicine Precision Genomics Collaboratory in collaboration with the Duke Center for Advanced Genomic Technologies (CAGT) offered pilot grants to investigators to develop and/or apply genomic technologies to significant questions in the study or treatment of human disease. These one-year, $20,000 pilot grants were open to investigators at all stages in their careers.
