Programs & Services

Our team offers several services that are designed to help researchers get connected to, and feel knowledgeable about, the tools that are available to them as a member of the Duke research community:

Research Navigators 

The myRESEARCHnavigators team help investigators identify relevant resources, connect with experts, and understand processes and best practices for performing research at Duke. This service is funded by the Duke CTSI.

Researcher Consultations and Onboarding

We offer 1:1 consultation and onboarding sessions for researchers who are engaging in a variety research activities. Each consultation is tailored to the specific portfolio and research-related plans of the researcher.

Campus Oversight Organization

The Campus Oversight Organization for DUHS IRB Protocols supports Campus faculty submitting protocols to the Duke University Health System Institutional Review Board. This website explains how a Campus department-based faculty member can choose which IRB to use, how the DUHS IRB review process works, and who to contact for help with this process. 

Other Services for Researchers

Other services provided by the Duke Office of Research Initiatives include facilitating researcher access to the anti-plagiarism software iThenticate, managing a lending library for commonly used items that researchers may need access to and facilitating a Summer Writing Group for Researchers.
