The Grant Review & Analysis Office serves several functions for the Medical School, Medical School Administration (MSA), and Hospitals & Health Centers (HHC). It is our responsibility to review all proposals routed through eResearch Proposal Management (eRPM) and materials transfer agreements involving Medical School faculty and/or space for compliance with school, university, and sponsor guidelines. We have signature authority on behalf of the Dean of the Medical School and are authorized by the University to submit electronic PHS proposals directly to the sponsor.
HOW GRANT REVIEW & ANALYSIS SUPPORTS RESEARCH
“Pre-Award” constitutes anything that facilitates a proposal’s creation and submission, prior to the award being received. We offer resources for proposal preparation, using eResearch Proposal Management (eRPM), proposal routing, and proposal submission.
“Post-Award” comprises everything that happens to administer a research project, following the official award being received. We also maintain the Post-Award Procedures Manual, which represents the consolidation of the Medical School post-award procedures and best practices.
Our office provides data for sections of the M-DASH and M-STAT systems. We collect data from the proposals submitted, as well as directly from the National Institutes of Health. We are also able to provide data based on award submissions and receipts.
Our office also writes and maintains policies related to aspects of sponsored research in the Medical School, creates and holds training sessions on various research administration topics, and works on special projects that arise and need our expertise.
