Past Funding Opportunities

Genomic Technologies Pilot Grant

The Duke School of Medicine Precision Genomics Collaboratory in collaboration with the Duke Center for Advanced Genomic Technologies is offering pilot grants to investigators to develop and/or apply genomic technologies to significant questions in the study or treatment of human disease. This pilot grant opportunity exists to employ the power of novel genomic technologies, and their associated data and analytical methods, to reach beyond that which is readily measurable or manipulatable by traditional methods for addressing the most pressing challenges in human disease biology. Any technology or method is relevant to this request, provided there is strong justification that the approach is new and impactful.

Open to investigators at all stages in their career. We anticipate awarding 2-3 grants of up to $20,000 each for a duration of one year.

The Center for Advanced Genomic Technologies (Cagt) Fellowship 2021- 2022


The Center for Advanced Genomic Technologies (CAGT) is excited to provide fellowships that support postdoctoral trainees conducting research to develop genomic technologies and methods for associated computational analyses, as well as applying these technologies to basic and applied biomedical sciences. Genome Technology Fellows will receive support for two years and participate in mentored research with topics to be determined by the fellow and faculty advisor(s) based on mutual interests. Collaborative, interdisciplinary projects that cross multiple labs will be prioritized. Fellows will also benefit from and actively participate in CAGT programing, including an annual Symposium, seminars, career development activities and other Center enrichment opportunities.
