Sharing successes, challenges and daily happenings in the Department of Medicine

Medicine Matters Home Research National Research Administrator Day

National Research Administrator Day

Started in 2015 by the National Council of University Research Administrators, National Research Administrator Day is celebrated annually on September 25 to recognize the many contributions administrators make every day in supporting the mission of universities and research institutions.

This past year, teams of research administrators across the School of Medicine have met the challenges of adapting to remote work, while navigating new policies and continuing non-stop to help produce another record year in funded awards.

For FY23 (includes All Children’s):

  • 4,186 proposals were submitted, seeking $3,880,000,572 in funding
  • 1,510 awards received, totaling $1,249,347,155 in funding

Please take a moment to recognize their extraordinary efforts, and the part they play in supporting faculty and the SOM research mission by sending them a personal message. Your message will post on the School of Medicine CORA web portal, a site set-up for the SOM research administration community.

Thank you for taking the time to show appreciation to those who support your research endeavors throughout the year.

From the DOM

Despite a challenging time for academic medicine in this country, the Department of Medicine research portfolio continues to grow year over year. This is in no small part due to the research administrators within the DOM who partner with investigators as well as the Office of Research Administration and Sponsored Projects Shared Services to ensure grant submissions and award processes run smoothly. We are incredibly grateful for their contributions that help push scientific discovery forward. Our scientists could not do what they do without them.
