Post-Award Advisory Committee (PAAC)

The Post-Award Advisory Committee (PAAC) provides oversight and information dissemination to Medical School staff responsible for post-award administration as well as an opportunity for units to communicate post-award research administrative needs.  The committee consists of a chair, a research administrator representative from the Medical School Unit, and a Sponsored Programs representative. PAAC members are responsible for attending meetings and communicating information to their respective areas.  A list of current members is provided below and information presented at monthly PAAC meetings can be accessed at the bottom of this page.

PAAC and other Dean’s Office information is shared with the Medical School research community via an email group. To add or remove yourself from the Medical School research community email group please email Beth Brant.
