Duke University is seeking cutting-edge science, engineering, and medical research projects to consider for presentation to the W.M. Keck Foundation. Because Keck will accept a maximum of two proposals from the university (one each in science/engineering and medical research), we are conducting an internal review process to identify and select competitive ideas.
The Keck Foundation supports “pioneering discoveries in science, engineering, and medical research” that fall outside the mission of NIH, NSF and other public funding agencies. Keck strives to fund distinctive and novel approaches. It encourages high-risk projects with the potential for transformative impact.
The internal submission deadline is June 21, 2019. The sponsor deadline is Nov. 1, 2019.
