Duke-NCCU Bridge Office

Creating opportunities for multidisciplinary collaborations

The Duke-NCCU Bridge Office works closely with Duke and NCCU leadership to create opportunities for multidisciplinary collaborations and ensure that faculty, investigators, and trainees at all career levels have access to core resources and services to do innovative research.
