Welcome to the School of Medicine Office of Research Administration.

Our mission is to manage and facilitate efficient conduct of research for faculty, students and staff by providing administrative support for research compliance, core facilities, innovations, and other research resources. Our office acts as a liaison on behalf of the School of Medicine for all research related matters. Research Administration provides guidance and stewardship for researchers while ensuring compliance with federal, University, and private sponsor regulations, terms, and conditions. Additionally the Office serves as the SOM central resource for coordination of limited external funding.

We are here to provide you with administrative support, information and guidance, and to help investigators at the School of Medicine conduct world class research. Check out our renovated website and return often for news on policy updates, events, and funding announcements.
