This project is made possible through the generosity of the Margolis Family Foundation, which provides core resources for the Center, as well as a combination of financial and in-kind contributions from consortium members including BioMarin Pharmaceuticals, Edwards Lifesciences, Eli Lilly and Co., Gilead Sciences, Merck, and Otsuka Pharmaceutical Companies.

Participation of private or non-profit organizations in Center activities does not imply an endorsement by Duke University or associated entities. As part of Duke University, Duke-Margolis honors the tradition of academic independence on the part of its faculty and scholars. Neither Duke nor the Margolis Center take partisan positions, but the individual members are free to speak their minds and express their opinions regarding important issues. Duke Margolis adheres to all institutional policies on research independence and conflict of interest.
