Michael L. James, MD, FAHA, FNCSWe are pleased to announce the appointment of Duke Anesthesiology’s Michael “Luke” James, MD, FAHA, FNCS, to the position of assistant vice chancellor for Duke-NUS Research. This position will assist the vice chancellor of Duke-NUS Affairs by providing support and oversight for building research partnerships and collaborations with Duke-NUS. He will have a coordinate appointment as assistant dean in the Duke-NUS Office of Academic and Clinical Development, which oversees joint activities between Duke-NUS and SingHealth.

James will work with Dr. Edward Buckley, vice chancellor for Duke-NUS Affairs, to identify areas of key strategic overlap between Duke Health and the SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Center; construct specific, collaborative platforms for building alignment; and create programs to support, resource and execute these new collaborative efforts. In addition, we want to continue to foster individual- and center/departmental-level collaboration both formally through existing platforms and informally by facilitating productive conversations.

As the partnership between Duke and Duke-NUS matures, we look forward to working with James to take advantage of the many opportunities available.
