Pediatrics Office of Research Administration
The mission of the Pediatrics Office of Research Administration is to facilitate excellence in the conduct of research by providing leadership and expertise in research administration and assistance to faculty with development, review, submission, renewal of grants, clinical trials, contracts, and subcontracts administered in the department. In addition, we support faculty with conduct of research with human subjects and clinical trials quality monitoring.
Available resources include pre-award specialists, a clinical research support unit, a weekly funding opportunities digest, and a bimonthly newsletter. The office ensures adherence to Columbia University and funding agencies’ guidelines, policies, and procedures. These include effort reporting, adherence to uniform guidance cost principles, and compliance with the regulatory requirements that govern research. In doing so, we work very closely with Columbia University’s Sponsored Projects Administration, Sponsored Projects Finance, the Clinical Trials Office, and the Institutional Review Board.
