Interdisciplinary Research Leaders Program


The Duke Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity and Gender in the Social Sciences (REGSS) is administering the Robert Woods Johnson Foundation grant for  the Interdisciplinary Research Leaders program, a new initiative led by the University of Minnesota. The goal of the program is to nurture leaders who are comfortable working in interdisciplinary teams and skilled at using research to promote policy changes that can affect health.

In September Duke researchers Donna Biederman, Mina Silberberg, and Emily Carmody received the grant which includes leadership training, opportunities to explore different research methods, and research funds to conduct and apply high-quality, community-engaged, action-oriented health research with the intent to affect policy around social determinants of health.
