Duke University is one of 10 schools to receive an NIH K12 Research Grant from the National Health Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI). Titled Dissemination and Implementation Science in Cardiovascular Outcomes (DISCO), the K12 clinical research areas encompass heart, lung, blood, and sleep disorders. Six K12 Scholars will conduct research for up to three years with support from no fewer than two faculty members (in all, 14 faculty members with a wide range of research and clinical expertise are available for mentorship and mentor contact time is guaranteed for the Scholars). At the conclusion of their appointments, K12 Scholars are expected to win their own investigator awards from a funding agency.
