    Joining virtually in celebration of Duke faculty and students' novel research accomplishments, Duke Research Week 2021 is a week-long program of 12 events beginning January 25 with a panel discussion on how Duke's surveillance testing has kept campus safe during COVID-19. Topics such as voting in the presidential election, new tools for researchers, and the technologies, inventions, and novel ideas that illustrate the breadth of Duke research will also be covered.

    Since we cannot offer lunch virtually, two $100 vouchers will be awarded each day to participating attendees of lunchtime webinar events. Recipients will be chosen from a random raffle contest.
