The Chronicle sat down with Jason Locasale, associate professor of pharmacology and cancer biology, to explore the evolution of the path that made him one of the most sought-out cancer researchers in the world. He discussed what brought him to Duke and his research here with the Locasale Lab on metabolism in cancer. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.
The Daniel Jones era in New York is officially here.
Ashley St. John, assistant professor in the Duke-NUS Medical School, was part of a research team that discovered a drug to prevent dengue fever from turning deadly.
For most college students, binge drinking is a familiar concept. During the week, students focus on our studies, but once Friday evening hits, the shots keep coming.
Mark Kruse, Fuchsberg-Levine family professor of physics, has been researching high-energy particle physics and potential updates to the current model of the universe since graduate school. Kruse worked with Al Goshaw, James B. Duke professor emeritus of physics, to discover the top quark, the “heaviest elementary particle,” and together they were awarded the 2019 High Energy and Particle Physics Prize. Kruse sat down with The Chronicle to discuss his work with the top quark and the formation of the universe. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.
A five-minute collapse of Duke's defense forced by SMU striker Garrett McLaughlin was all the underdog Mustangs needed Monday night.
In his inaugural column, my friend, David Min, thrust a dagger into a largely nonexistent foe: sincere centrists. Lambasting the mild and moderate wherever they cower, Min argued that centrists “adopt their political affiliation as a result of privilege and general political apathy.” Delving into the psyche of these “Centrist Chads,” Min supposes that they ignore the obligation to seek “absolute truth” and instead “begin with the assumption that moderation is an objective good...”
A Sunday evening battle between Duke and the Dukes ended with the Durham-based squad on top, as the Blue Devils extended their winning streak to four behind the pluck of sophomore Mackenzie Pluck.
They say the devil is in the details. But in Durham, the Blue Devils are in the details—and numbers.
Dining is a central facet of life at Duke. Whether it's grabbing food to-go during the hubbub of class change or sitting down with friends for a leisurely meal, the University's eateries are an important part of the Duke experience.
The key to better health could be solved by taking a closer look at who distributes antibiotics, according to a recent Duke study.
Imagine that by smelling someone, you could understand their genetic diversity, immune system health and potential as a mate.
In the wake of a $112.5 million settlement, the question of research integrity has been prevalent on the minds of Duke students and staff members.
As the saying goes, lightning rarely strikes the same place twice—but sometimes it strikes right after you see a giant squid.
We are now a few weeks into the new academic year, which means many of us are inevitably transitioning into our latest campus leadership roles. I remember being surprised when I got to Duke that so many of these positions were held by sophomores or juniors. In high school, at least in my experience, seniors essentially had a monopoly on most of those positions. But in college, when the tenure of a position formally ends, the student holding it oftentimes won’t yet be graduating. On the contrary, they may have one or two years left at Duke, which poses a question: should those students continue to serve in their positions or pass them on to others?
With the issue of health care at the center of the 2020 presidential campaign, North Carolina is tackling it head-on—with Duke at the center of the reforms.

When the Blue Devils tee off Monday morning, it will be their first team competition since hoisting the program’s seventh national championship last May.
Almost immediately upon stepping foot on campus, most Duke students pick up on a pervasive culture of “effortless perfection.” Many students have already commented on this expectation to work hard and play hard, get perfect grades, have multiple leadership positions, conduct research, secure prestigious internships and still have a thriving social life. It’s a culture that has a truly pernicious effect on our mental and physical health, imbuing a deep sense of alienation, inadequacy, stress, depression, anxiety, and so on.
I applaud the measures that Duke is taking to explore blatant and hidden racism, bring light onto these issues and strongly move away from its segregated past.
