Research Programs from Duke / Duke-NUS

Duke and Duke-NUS have collaborated from the very beginning of the relationship. Listed here are the active research collaborations, as well as information about Duke-NUS research organizations.

Duke / Duke-NUS Research Collaboration Pilot Projects

Duke University and Duke-NUS Medical School (Duke-NUS) announce calls for proposals for collaborative research pilot projects between faculty at Duke with those based at Duke-NUS or SingHealth. The ultimate goal of this program is the development of international research teams that advance translational and clinical research, including research on medical technologies. Translational research is defined as research with an aim towards human application. Specific areas of focus for Duke-NUS and its Academic Medicine partner, SingHealth, are cancer, neuroscience, cardiometabolic disorders, infectious diseases, inflammation and immunology, eye diseases, health services research, and medical technologies/bioengineering.
