Objective

Duke University and Duke-NUS Medical School Singapore (Duke-NUS) are pleased to announce a call for proposals for collaborative research pilot projects between faculty based in Durham with those based in Singapore.

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.

This Request for Application (RFA) will support two types of applications, with 50% of the funding budget devoted to an open call for any application and 50% devoted to supporting specific initiatives, namely Population Health, Implementation Science, Digital Medicine, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, and Aging.
