New Funding Opportunity: MEDx High-Risk High-Impact Challenge

MEDx High-Impact High-Risk Challenge due April 1

The MEDx High Risk, High Impact Challenge provides seed funding for interdisciplinary high-risk, high-impact projects focusing on a human-health related research problem.  This request for proposals (RFP) welcomes applications with an investigator each from Duke Engineering and Medicine, and can include an additional investigator from a complementary discipline. Early-stage projects that are high-risk/high-impact, but are unlikely to receive funding from traditional funding agencies without preliminary data are strongly encouraged. Projects must propose radical or transformative ideas, and not incremental advances. 

Up to three awards ranging from $25,000-$50,000 will be made with at least one award targeted towards early career investigators. Read on for more details
