The Doris Duke Early Clinician Investigator Award honors the academic achievements and potential of early career clinician scientists conducting original and rigorous clinical research projects. Awardees are connected with helpful resources, have mentorship meetings with the program directors, and are welcomed into a community of program scholars.
The grant provides scholars up to $30,000 of supplemental research funds, in direct costs, over 12 months to support awardees’ current or developing research. A second year of funding is possible depending on research progress, need for and availability of funds. In order to be eligible for the awards, applicants must have extraprofessional caregiving responsibilities.
The Johns Hopkins Doris Duke Early Clinician Investigator Award Program is directed by Gail Daumit, MD, MHS and Daniel Ford MD, MPH and funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
