Other programs

The Office of Research Initiatives offers other services and programming geared to researchers across the institution.

Writing Groups for Researchers

We facilitate programming around scholarly writing including writing groups and retreats. These programs are offered in collaboration with Duke Faculty Write (an initiative of the Thompson Writing Program), the Office of Campus Research Development, and the Office for Faculty Advancement. We aim to bring together researchers at various levels from across Duke, regardless of discipline and writing project. To see our current offerings visit our Events page or email us researchinitiatives@duke.edu

Write Winning NIH Grant Proposals Seminar

Back by popular demand, Duke is hosting Write Winning NIH Grant Proposals, a virtual seminar from Grant Writers' Seminars and Workshops. This session will be held virtually from 9:00am - 12:30pm (EDT) on July 15th and 16th, and is geared towards faculty or others who are responsible for writing NIH grant applications.

Duke is covering the registration fees for the seminar; however, all registrants are required to purchase the most recent version of The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook, and may choose to request that support from their department. A Zoom link to the session will be sent upon confirmation of purchase of the workbook.
