Primate Genomics Initiative
Faculty research support:
The Duke University Primate Genomics Initiative (PGI) is designed to build upon strong foundations in any aspect of primate biology using genomics to create stronger research directions. The PGI is specifically focused on promoting cross-divisional and cross-school collaborations among researchers studying both basic and clinical sciences in cognition, behavior, anatomy, neuroscience, medicine, and genomics to increase our understanding of the biology and evolution of primates. We welcome collaborations and partnerships that will benefit from genetic and genomic expertise and/or resources. In order to catalyze collaborations through the development of important primate resources, monetary awards averaging between $3,000 and $5,000 are available on a competitive basis for resource creation and data collection. Ideally, the data generated via a successful award will be important for investigators who plan to seek extramural funding. Partnerships with members of the Evolutionary Anthropology Department and the Institute for Genome Sciences & Policy (IGSP) will aid with data collection and analysis.
