Duke internal medicine residents Jessica Regan, MD, and Sonali Bracken, MD, PhD, have been selected for the Duke Stimulating Access to Research in Residency Program (StARR), a new program that is funded by two R38 grants from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
As a young researcher, Svati Shah expected that genomic studies would reveal vital insights into the roots of disease.

Fourteen faculty from the Department of Medicine were chosen as Duke Health Scholars and Duke Health Fellows. This inaugural program was created with a transfer of funds from the Duke University Health System. Its aim is to support the research efforts and enhance the academic success of early to mid-career clinician-scientists in School of Medicine clinical departments.
