The Doris Duke Clinical Scientist Development Award provides grants to junior physician-scientists to facilitate their transition to independent clinical research careers. The transition to an independent research career is often more difficult for physician-scientists conducting clinical research than it is for other researchers, as these individuals must balance both the demands of seeing patients with those of conducting research. It is the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation's hope that by providing stable support at a critical career juncture for physician-scientists, the Clinical Scientist Development Award will encourage physicians to pursue careers in clinical research.

Nominees must

  • be a physician-scientist conducting clinical research in any disease area;
  • have received an M.D. or a foreign equivalent from an accredited institution;
  • be working in a U.S. degree-granting institution, but do not have to be a U.S. citizen;
  • have a full-time faculty-level position not higher than the assistant professor level; and
  • have been appointed to their first full-time faculty level position between January 1, 2003, and January 1, 2008. (All full-time post-fellowship instructor-level positions will be considered full-time faculty-level appointments).

Note that experiments that utilize animals or primary tissues derived from animals will not be supported by this program.

Because MU is limited to three applications for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, October 26, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to a two-page summary of the proposed research, its originality and methods, along with a two-page biographical sketch of the nominee.
