Office of Research Administration

Handling the business of research, so faculty can perform the research

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.
