Mission Statement

The Office of Research Affairs works in tandem with the College of Medicine faculty, research leadership, and central University research administration. In doing so we wish to lead the development of the strategic vision and work a plan for the implementation of that strategic vision for research programs. Our goal is to diversify our research-funding portfolio and make it more sustainable.

We work to identify funding opportunities and cultivate research opportunities. We also identify and interpret sponsor guidelines, regulations, and specific procedures to enable and facilitate new extra extramural proposals. We will provide administrative support to facilitate collaborative research and large-scale interdisciplinary research opportunities.

Our office provides support for sponsored research development and success. We hope to foster research excellence and improve the environment for basic, translational and clinical sciences. We wish to facilitate the research that will ultimately lead to advances in health care outcomes.
