Preparing Ph.D. graduates and postdoctoral trainees in the life sciences for a successful career in research administration through a series of unit rotations, hands-on learning experiences, and direct mentorship from leaders in the field.
Medical School Office of Research leadership provides operational and fiscal management for all the supporting units. Critical activities include the implementation of strategic initiatives, leading enterprise change management, and fostering collaborations with the research community across the university.
Grant Services & Analysis (GS&A) serves several functions for the Medical School and Michigan Medicine. They review all proposals routed through eResearch Proposal Management (eRPM), provide pre- and post-award support, provide data for sections of the M-DASH and M-STAT systems, and design and implement Research Development services that help faculty become successful in obtaining and maintaining extramural funding.
The Biomedical Research Core Facilities (BRCF) are centralized facilities or labs which offer shared services, shared equipment, resources, and expertise to biomedical researchers and investigators on a fee-for-service basis.
The Unit for Laboratory Animal Medicine (ULAM) is one of the nation’s oldest and most recognized programs training laboratory animal veterinarians. ULAM provides a variety of services and educational offerings to support the U-M research community and the animals under their care.
Several units oversee regulatory and ethical protections of human participants and provide support for the management of studies involving human participants. The Human Research rotation allows fellows to work with units including but not limited to:
Calendar Review & Analysis Office
The Calendar Review & Analysis Office (CRAO) assists principal investigators and study teams conducting clinical research by providing analysts and support specialists who can provide guidance on the billing grid/calendar which will interface with MiChart, review required core documents for alignment with Medicare and University policies, and provide clinical research billing analysts who will audit and work to have clinical research billing errors corrected.
Clinical Trials Support Office
The Clinical Trials Support Office (CTSO) is the management team for the trans-departmental Clinical Trials Support Units (CTSUs). The CTSO offers enterprise-wide standards, policies, and a common infrastructure and acts as a liaison between Principal Investigators and study teams to other partners across UM involved in clinical research. All clinical trials at U-M are supported by a CTSU.
Institutional Review Boards - University of Michigan Medical School
