Research Infrastructure

In addition to the hardware and facilities, the department also offers a unique support system accessible to both veteran and junior researchers. A complete administrative core, led by Lois Mannon, Research Administrator, includes highly trained research coordinators from both nursing and technology backgrounds whose purpose is to assist the researcher with set up, IRB preparation, data collection and protocol requirements. Pre-award personnel assist in preparing grant budgets, clinical trials, and grant applications, and post-award personnel to support and expedite purchasing, tracking and reconciliation of research funds. We also offer a wide range of educational seminars, including MR problem solving, biostatistics, journal club and current topics in research to enrich the research environment.
