Making your research our priority...

Jefferson's Office of Research Administration (ORA) assists researchers in applying for, and managing sponsored funding through our mission, which is:

  • To serve as the official point of contact for the various sponsors of scientific and scholarly activity.
  • To facilitate the relationship between Jefferson investigators and these sponsors.
  • To ensure sponsored projects are managed in accordance with sponsor regulations and Jefferson policies.
  • To provide education and resources to support the management of sponsored programs.

Research Administration is managed through, Research Administration Center of Excellence (RACE), a shared service center that provides faculty-centric research administration support across TJU.
