The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation 2019 Clinical Scientist Development Award

The Doris Duke Clinical Scientist Development Award provides grants to early-career 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 than it is for other researchers, as these individuals must balance the demands of both seeing patients and conducting research. DDCF's Medical Research Program created the Clinical Scientist Development Award to provide mentored research funding to early-career physician-scientist faculty to enable their transition to independent and successful research careers.
