Duke Scholars in Molecular Medicine (DSMM)

Duke Scholars in Molecular Medicine Relating Research to Patient Care

The Duke Scholars in Molecular Medicine Program is a 9-month program (September to May) during which PhD candidates and postdoctoral associates who are studying basic sciences gain hands-on experience in clinical areas related to their field of research. 

The program comprises four tracks based on strengths at the Duke School of Medicine and represent the National Institutes of Health’s central pillars of human morbidity and mortality.  

Each track enables 4-10 scholars to participate in clinical rounds, journal clubs about clinical trials, clinical conferences, and special interactive sessions with guest faculty.  

The Duke Scholars in Molecular Medicine Program is directed by Dr. Nancie MacIver, Associate Professor in Pediatrics.
