  • About the Office

    The Office of Scientific Affairs is the administrative unit charged with providing and coordinating resources for College investigators in both clinical and basic research endeavors. The Office works with researchers to maintain an environment that is robust, innovative and collaborative.

    Staff is available to assist investigators in each step of the proposal submission process. The Office communicates internal and external funding opportunities, assists in proposal preparation, routing, award administration and transfer agreements.

    The Carver College of Medicine supports 12 state of the art Core Research Facilities, which receive administrative support through the Office. Additional shared resources and facilities are made available to College researchers through agreements with other University of Iowa and off-campus institutions.

    On an annual basis, Office staff also study and allocate physical research space for over 250 investigator laboratories and advise on facility projects such as renovations and major research-related building projects.

    Collaboration is fostered through the Office by coordination of research events and activities including the College of Medicine's Distinguished Biomedical Scholars Lecture Series, Health Sciences Research Week as well as various special seminars, workshops and symposia throughout the year.
