The Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) was created in 2006 to be responsible for all global health research, education, and policy development at Duke. Based on Duke’s rich tradition of interdisciplinary work and drawing on the intellectual assets of the entire University to address global issues, the Institute seeks to reduce disparities in health in our local community and worldwide through programs and activities in global health education, research, service and policy.
Duke Global Health Institute and Cancer Institute will provide up to $25,000 direct costs for one year of support for each pilot research project that address issues relating to cancer prevention, diagnosis, or treatment in resource constrained environments. Two pilot projects will be funded. Specific emphasis will be given for interdisciplinary research between DGHI and DCI faculty with the larger goal of enabling investigators to leverage preliminary findings and data to obtain external funding and develop collaborations in LMIC. New investigators and/or new collaborations and projects in global health research are encouraged to apply and will be given special consideration.
Application Deadline: July 16, 2018
