Office of Research Administration

One of the highest priorities in the School of Medicine’s strategic plan is to improve the research infrastructure to support the needs of existing faculty, to aggressively recruit new NIH-funded investigators, and to expand research training opportunities for medical students and residents.

The School’s Office of Research provides the base for these efforts by:

  • Preparing signature information in PeopleSoft for School of Medicine grant submissions.
  • Processing and reviewing biannual University grant effort verification reporting.
  • Hosting a research Listserv for information dissemination and faculty discussion.
  • Contract and budget development for industry funded clinical trials at TMC.
  • Coordinating the participation of School of Medicine students in the annual UMKC Health Sciences Student Research Summit.
  • Ensuring department and administrative approval at TMC for non-funded faculty, resident and student research.
  • Collate annual SOM endowed chair reports to the University.
