The Duke Center for REsearch to AdvanCe Healthcare Equity (REACH Equity) is committed to supporting investigators at every career stage who are interested in conducting research which promotes health equity. Therefore, REACH Equity is seeking applications for three funding opportunities:
- Research Vouchers Program (faculty at any rank), which will supplement currently funded research, or support standalone research projects conducted by faculty at any level and broadly related to the REACH Equity theme.
- Research Scholars Development Program (residents, fellows, postdoctoral students, nursing trainees with a research or health professional degree or equivalent), which is intended to support early-stage investigators (trainees, postdoctoral students) who are interested in conducting health disparities research.
- Transdisciplinary Think Tanks (teams of investigators), which provide support to bring together faculty across disciplines who have a common interest in addressing racial and ethnic disparities in the clinical encounter—an area where disparities are well-documented but evidence-based research identifying potential solutions is limited.
The deadline for all programs is Sept. 3, 2018.
