Leading Discovery

Introductory graphic

The pace of scientific discovery today is unparalleled in human history. Scientists are unlocking secrets of the human genome and molecular processes deep within cells. They are sharing information at lightning speed and using high tech equipment to see and understand like never before. Duke Medicine is uniquely prepared to capitalize on this great convergence of science and technology. Collaboration and innovation are deeply embedded in our culture, extending across the 10 schools of Duke University. Through the Campaign, we seek to grow Duke’s historic strengths in the basic sciences, invest in new areas of innovation, foster collaboration, and accelerate progress across the continuum—from laboratory bench to human application.

You are key to our success

To succeed, we seek philanthropic investment in endowments for faculty, fellowships, and research, and current use funds for early-stage research, equipment, and programmatic support.
