The Grant Processing Advisory Committee (GPAC) provides oversight and information to the staff in the Medical School who prepare and route grant proposals.

The committee consists of a chair and one research administrator representative from each Medical School unit.  

The department representative is charged with ensuring the rest of the department is informed (see below).

GPAC meets from 10:00 - 11:30am on the second Wednesday of every month.

In addition to the GPAC meetings there is also an email group used to share information from the Dean's Office with the Medical School research community. To add or remove yourself from this email group please email Jane Sierra.
