Doris Duke Early Clinician Investigator Award Seeking Applicants

Applications are due May 6, 2019 by 5:00 pm EST

The Doris Duke Foundation has been committed to advancing clinical research for many years. Their
review of the data has led them to the position that short term support for clinical researchers facing
extra-professional demands could help them stay on a clinical investigation career track. With funding from the foundation and the School of Medicine, the Johns Hopkins Doris Duke Early Clinician Investigator Award aims to provide financial and mentoring resources for up 18 months to junior physician scientists who are working to have a productive career while also caring for family members.

The grant provides a maximum of $40,000 from Jul 1, 2019- June 20, 2020 and up to $30,000 for July 1, 2020- Dec 31, 2020.

Physicians scientists at Instructor or Assistant Professor level, full time at JHM with an active medical license and principal investigators on internal or externally funded research grants are eligible to apply.
