The Rockefeller University's Sponsored Research and Program Development (SR-PD) facilitates and streamlines grant and contract administration in compliance with pertinent policies and regulations. The SR-PD Director reports to the University Vice President for Academic Affairs.
Driven by the university mission, SR-PD anticipates and responds to research needs and shifting funding trends. We offer services and resources to enable the university's pioneering research, partnering with investigators, compliance oversiht areas, and other central administration offices to promote collaborative and single investigator projects, as well as to pursue training and infrastructure funding opportunities.
SR-PD assists investigators and their staff in navigating the sponsored research funding landscape, in seeking sponsored research opportunities, and in managing sponsored research awards. We identify and disseminate funding resources, we review sponsored research applications' responsiveness and compliance, and we endorse and submit them on behalf of the university. SR-PD acts as a liaison to sponsor agencies in negotiating agreements and resolving funding issues.
