The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation
2022 Clinical Scientist Development Award competition is now open

The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation recognizes that a diverse workforce that represents the demographics of the population of the United States is better poised to address health issues affecting all communities. DDCF strongly encourages individuals from groups underrepresented in biomedical research to apply because DDCF is committed to the retention and advancement of early-career physician scientists who are conducting seminal clinical research and who belong to populations whose exclusion from research based on their race, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic background has resulted in underrepresentation in the workforce.
