Leading Research Across a Spectrum of Care

Although best known for our pioneering research in cardiology, we lead groundbreaking clinical trials and studies in the areas of gastrointestinal health, infectious disease, neuroscience, oncology, pediatrics, and respiratory medicine. The breadth of our work is matched by the depth of our knowledge, which we disseminate through high-impact publications and global meetings.

As a part of the Duke University School of Medicine, the DCRI provides access to practicing physicians and researchers from numerous therapeutic areas and sub-specialties, as well as experts in genomics and proteomics. Our research innovators understand the biology of disease, which means we bring insight to research that is grounded in real-world practice.
