Core Facility Voucher Program – Call for Proposals

Thursday, August 31, 2017

Current submission deadline: October 20, 2017

The School of Medicine departments, institutes and centers oversee a wide range of research core facilities. To enable investigators to access these services for exciting new studies that are not yet externally funded, we are pleased to announce the 2017 Fall Core Facility Voucher Program.

The Core Facility Voucher Program is a joint program with the School of Medicine (SoM), the Office of the Provost and Duke Research Computing/Office of Information Technology to offer vouchers in amounts ranging from $500 to $10,000 redeemable for provision of services at SoM core facilities/shared resources. The sources of funding are from the School of Medicine and the Office of the Vice Provost for Research (OVPR).

All data or resource generating core facilities/shared resources that provide services open to faculty members on a fee-for-service basis are eligible for participation in this program. No more than two facilities can be included in a single proposal. Research Computing may be included as a third facility, if utilizing data storage space in conjunction with data collected from another core facility.

The list of eligible core facilities can be found on the Core Research Facilities web page.
