Methodologies in Research

Here are examples of research methods and the names of faculty who use these methods in their research.

Further training is possible in the curriculum we lead, the Clinical Research Training Program (CRTP) in collaboration with the Training Program in Clinical Research at the National Institutes of Health. This program offers a Master of Health Sciences in Clinical Research given by Duke University School of Medicine.
