Impact of COVID-19

To help slow the spread of COVID-19, the Duke Health Development and Alumni Affairs team is now working remotely, with rare exception. You may experience a delay in gift acknowledgements, and processing of gifts that arrive by mail may be delayed. Online gifts will be processed at the usual speed. Thank you for your patience as we adapt to our temporary work arrangement.

Advancing Health Together

We live in a time of unprecedented potential in biomedical science, education, technology, population and community health, and health care delivery. As one of the world’s foremost academic health enterprises, Duke Health integrates the Duke University School of Medicine, Duke University School of Nursing, Duke University Health System, and health programs across the university. Duke Health advances these frontiers through state-of-the-art clinical care, health promotion and disease prevention, breakthrough basic and clinical research, and educational experiences that prepare the next generation of health leaders. Every donor is an important partner in that work, and every gift plays a role in helping Duke Health and its constituent units advance health together.

Regeneration Next

“One day, patients will have access to regenerative medicine treatments that will circumvent the complications of organ donation,” says Sharlini Sankaran, PhD, executive director of Duke’s Regeneration Next Initiative. “We will be able to use our bodies’ own innate repair mechanisms to eliminate the wait time, cost, and limited supply of organ transplantation. Instead of transplanting organs, we will know how to repair our own.”

Mongolia Research

The fortified Toyota Land Cruiser slipped and bounced in the muddy hollows of the rain-drenched Mongolian steppe. The driver, a native Mongolian man named Inka who spoke little English, slowly engineered the vehicle along what just two days earlier was a dusty pair of dirt tracks.

Mimicking the Placental...

The United States has one of the highest rates of preterm birth—up to 10 percent of all pregnancies—in the world. And many pregnancy complications, such as pre-eclampsia, which contributes to preterm birth, are associated with abnormal placental development.
