The SOM Research Administration Services Team provides pre- and post-award research administration support to departments, centers, and institutes within the School of Medicine.
Our goals are to…
Be a trusted partner of SOM faculty and department, center, and institute administrators in support of their research goals.
Assist PIs and students every step of the proposal process, adhering to School of Medicine SOPs and VCU policies along the way.
Monitor active awards for potential post-award actions on a regular basis.
Ensure expenses are being applied appropriately and compliantly to all active awards.
Continually share with and learn from our peers.
