Sponsored Travel Programs

The Office of Duke-NUS Affairs sponsors travel for Duke faculty to Singapore and facilitates visits from Singapore to Duke.

Travel Grants

The Duke-NUS Medical School Singapore (Duke-NUS) announce calls for applications from Duke faculty members interested in visiting the school to engage with Duke-NUS faculty, with the primary goal of exploring potential collaborative research projects. While at Duke-NUS, the faculty member will be expected to present a research seminar.  Initiatives are in the areas of Cancer and Stem Cell Biology, Neuroscience and Behavioral Disorders, Cardiovascular and Metabolic Disorders, Emerging Infectious Diseases, and Health Systems and Services Research as well as in the Clinical Sciences via Academic Clinical Programs recently established with SingHealth.
