Funding Opportunities

Duke Microbiome Center Development Grants

Microbial communities (microbiomes) are known to contribute significantly to human health and disease, regulate global biogeochemistry, and harbor much of our planet’s genetic diversity. The Duke Microbiome Center (DMC) supports microbiome science at Duke University through pilot project funding. The DMC is pleased to announce this new request for proposals for DMC Development Grants. Each grant will receive funding up to $100,000. The objective of the DMC Development Grant program is to support interdisciplinary and collaborative research projects in the microbiome sciences at Duke University. To be eligible for consideration, the PI of the proposal must be a faculty member at Duke University currently affiliated with the DMC (see DMC faculty list here). Applications must include as co-investigators at least one additional faculty member at Duke, though they need not be currently affiliated with the DMC.

Application Deadline: Noon EST, Monday, May 13, 2019
