Welcome to the Duke Office of Research Initiatives

The Duke Office of Research Initiatives is a joint effort of the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, the School of Medicine and the Clinical and Translational Science Institute.

Our overarching goal is to facilitate effective research and collaborations for the Duke research community. We serve researchers from across Duke's schools, centers and institutes, and offer our services to all researchers -- from faculty to staff and trainees.
