Innovation Campfire, a new and fun approach co-sponsored by the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) and Duke Institute for Health Innovation (DIHI). Our goal is to spark innovative ideas that keep the DCRI on the cutting edge of how research should be done.
In the spirit of the television show Shark Tank, and modeled after DIHI's Innovation Jam, the program is a competition that will select and fund three to five burning hot ideas for improving clinical research. Your "pitch" is your team that poses a challenge and solution in areas of clinical research ripe for new ideas—like pragmatic trials, virtual trials, and machine learning. This isn't a request for research funding—it's an opportunity to showcase ideas that are on fire!
This competition is open to all—DCRI, Duke, and collaborators in other academic institutions and the commercial realm. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, December 15, 2020.
