Internal support for research development

No matter where you are in your career, the Department of Medicine provides concrete support to help you launch and maintain a successful research program.

  • Our Office of Research Services provides hands-on guidance and training throughout the life cycle of a research project. Our staff have expertise in pre- and post-award management, compliance, biostatistics, data science, finance and computing.
  • We're home to several research training grants for pre- and postdoctoral learners.
  • Early-career researchers can utilize our robust internal mentorship programs (including mentorship from experienced faculty members who have received formal training through the faculty development program), early-career focused grant trainings (K23, NSF Early Career, etc.), and assistance in navigating resources offered by DOM, SMPH and the University.
  • Established investigators have access to department-level resources for professional development, the promotion of research endeavors, the ability to hone leadership and teamwork skills through research collaborations, and the chance to partake in and contribute to a deep culture of mentorship at all career levels.
