Pediatrics Office of Research Administration

Pediatrics Research Administration strives to provide the best possible support to our research community. We manage grants throughout the lifecycle in a portfolio-style manner. Our experienced professional staff work with a select number of faculty in a personalized fashion. Each faculty member is able to rely upon their grants professional for all their sponsored research needs.

Pediatrics Research Administration (“PEDSRA”) has a very strong team-based approach for our back-end management of the department’s portfolio. We have developed tools to help us more easily interpret information and therefore better manage all the intricacies of the grant lifecycle.

We partner with Columbia’s central administrative departments to help investigators comply with the various regulations and laws related to performing research. PEDSRA partners with our other administrative teams especially the department’s division administrators and the finance and budget team.

Our senior director, Jon Evans, provides regular reports and analysis as well as ad-hoc reports to our chair Dr. Orange and department administrator/CFO Will Runkle. Through these specialized reports and data they collectively strategize and manage the department portfolio and allocation of resources.
