Review Process and Criteria

An ad-hoc committee chosen from Duke Radiology faculty will review the applications, and the highest evaluated applications will be submitted to the Chair of Radiology, the Vice-Chairs of Research in Radiology and the Radiology CRU Medical Director for a final funding decision. Reviewers will critique applications on the basis of feasibility, scientific merit, likelihood of proposal to form a sustained collaboration, and likelihood of the proposal to lead to external grant funding. The review committee has the option of declining to fund the Award for a given year.
