Office of Research

The Office of Research at the University of Michigan Medical School is constantly striving to enhance the research enterprise, including maintaining an investigator-focused infrastructure, facilitating and diversifying investigators' avenues for funding, and streamlining research processes.

We focus on you, so you can focus on great science.

From the enabling technologies of the Biomedical Research Core Facilities to proposal review by the Grant Review & Analysis Office to clinical study development by the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research, the Office of Research comprises over a dozen units offering a wide range of support to the research community.  Across the spectrum, our team's primary mission is to foster an environment of innovation and efficiency that serves the Medical School research community and, ultimately, contributes to positive patient impact.
