DuPRI was created to bring together the many faculty and post-doctoral researchers at Duke who are already involved in innovative interdisciplinary demographic and population research investigations. DuPRI's goals are:
To accomplish these goals, DuPRI is organized around two broad research programs – our program in Health and Human Development and our program in Aging. Within these substantive areas faculty use an unusually wide set of methods, many of which have been pioneered by our researchers.
Four groups of methods stand out:
DuPRI offers assistance to faculty associates and affiliates through all stages of the grants process: from proposal development and submission, through research administration responsibilities, to close out activities. DuPRI grant specialists work closely with faculty and SSRI as well as with the Office of Research Support and the Office of Sponsored Programs throughout the lifecycle of a grant. For more information or assistance, please contact the Grants staff.
DuPRI gives Duke University an internationally-recognized world-class asset in the field of population research. Institute members have joined together to push the current boundaries of investigation, especially by including faculty researchers from a broad and exciting set of disciplines, including the life sciences. DuPRI is affiliated with Duke's Social Science Research Institute (SSRI).
