Sponsored Funding Assistance

Faculty Research Collaborations

Through collegial efforts, faculty interest groups around research themes have been established to facilitate communication of research interests and the formation of potential collaborative scientific and scholarly pursuits.  Information on these faculty interest groups and how to get involved is available at the link provided on the left-hand navigation bar.

Office of Research Administration

We are a customer service oriented office providing a wide range of assistance to College of Medicine (CoM) faculty, staff and students. This includes managing the pre-award process for new or transferring sponsored contracts and grants. Med-RA is responsible for all matters pertaining to research  and other sponsored project proposals until such time as the contract, grant, or subrecipient agreement is awarded. Post-award support is then provided by Research Accounting.

CoM Human Subjects Research Review Process

Effective November 3, 2014, all CoM-affiliated projects involving human subjects, where a new IRB protocol is required, must first be reviewed internally by the Research Advisory Committee (RAC) prior to seeking approval from an Institutional Review Board (IRB). In research involving external funding, the RAC review will not impede or delay sponsor applications. Administrative support for RAC is provided by Med-RA. For more information.
