Welcome to the Department of Medicine Research Office
Grant writing assistance including proposal development and editing support for Department of Medicine faculty. Supported grant proposal types range from individual investigator research projects to multi-investigator and
institutional projects. Proposals for a variety of funding institutions are supported, including the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, and private foundations.
We provide centralized management of the various research funding programs available through the Department of Medicine administration:
We can facilitate the pre-award process, by assisting with training, larger PPG, and other grants, as well as supplying a database of necessary tables. We can also assist with divisional
post-award research productivity tracking. We hold regular division-wide administrator meetings to promote best practices among all DOM grant management professionals.
We work with the Assistant Vice Chancellor of Regulatory Compliance, which provides dedicated, DOM-specific access to regulatory assistance. We also maintain a list of key resources for clinical investigators, including COMIRB, CCTSI and the Clinical Research Center.
We work to identify additional funding sources beyond the NIH and serve as a liaison between funding agencies
and investigators, to help broaden the DOM research portfolio and complement our NIH funding.
We maintain and update a set of tools and templates designed
to simplify the completion of sections common to many grant applications (descriptions of the hospital, campus and department, responsible conduct of research (RCR) statement and resources, etc.) so that our researchers can devote more time
to the key science sections of their grants. We also work with the Grants & Contracts Office, SARC, UCH and the VA to simplify the research and grants process across units.
represent the DOM in campus-wide efforts to efficiently manage and allocate research (and storage) space among units and labs. If you need to make a request for additional research, office, or storage space on campus, we will be your first
point of contact. Additionally, we generate quarterly research dashboards that, along with the annual SOM research productivity report, serve to inform the conversation of space usage on campus.
