Grant Processing Advisory Committee

The Grant Processing Advisory Committee (GPAC) provides oversight and information to the staff in the Medical School who prepare and route grant proposals.  This committee is chaired by the Medical School's Director of Grant Review and Analysis, Heather Offhaus, and consists of one research administrator representative from each Medical School unit.  

The department representative is charged with ensuring the rest of the department is informed.  At the bottom of the page is a list of current participants by department.

GPAC meets from 10:00 - 11:30am on the second Wednesday of every month.  Click here to access the notes from recent GPAC meetings.

In addition to the GPAC meetings there is also an email group used to share information from the Dean's Office with the Medical School research community.  To add or remove yourself from this email group please email Heather Offhaus.
