Faculty On-boarding Information

The Office of Research Affairs works in tandem with the College of Medicine faculty, research leadership, and central University research administration. In doing so we wish to lead the development of the strategic vision and work a plan for the implementation of that strategic vision for research programs. Our goal is to diversify our research funding portfolio and make it more sustainable. In addition to strategic resource alignment, our office facilitates other areas of research support and growth:

Research promotion. We help network faculty with other researchers to maximize collaborations and efficient use of shared resources through hallway conversations as well as by hosting formal and informal events. Examples include:

  • Celebration of Research. The College of Medicine’s yearly research week consisting of poster session, keynote speaker and internal ‘short talks’.
  • Blitzes. An informal venue for investigators to meet new collaborators.
  • The Joseph and Lelia Applebaum Visiting Professorship. A College of Medicine endowed fund for select visiting scientists who present lectures to research faculty and students.
  • Maren Junior Investigator Awards. A College of Medicine endowed fund used to further the research careers of the most promising junior faculty, post-doctoral fellows and medical students.

Internal competitions, external limited submissions and nominations for internal awards. Our office is the point of contact for internal competitions and external limited submission opportunities where each College is required to review and submit their applications to the UF Office of Research. Examples include:

  • Research Opportunity Seed Fund
  • NIH Shared Instrumentation Grants
  • UF Research Foundation Professorships (UFRF)
  • Excellence Awards for Assistant Professors

Letters of support and nomination letters. Our office reviews and submits for Dean’s signature all letters of support for research grant applications and nomination letters for research awards.

NIH grant application support. We provide impact analysis for ‘R’ grant applications and assistance with programmatic grant applications (such as ‘P’ and ‘U’).

Training and other administrative requirements for new research faculty PI eligibility:

  1. To submit a proposal:
    • Have an active UF PI eligible faculty job record (this can be established as a temporary courtesy faculty appointment for faculty who have signed but not officially started).
  2. To receive a notice of award, complete the following mandatory training:
