OSP and the IRB office relocated to new spaces on the Ground Floor of Russell Hall on JUNE 30, 2015. Access to the Russell Hall Offices is currently limited to authorized individuals. We are working with security to find a time where more open access is feasible, but until that time, please contact your SPA or the IRB manager if you need to stop by so we can let you in.

3) Proposal Review Panel Held April 29, 2015
In these times of scarce research funding, it's good to know as much as possible about the review process, especially what distinguishes funded versus unfunded proposals. On April 29, 2015, the Office of the Provost sponsored a lively discussion among some faculty and staff who have recently been involved on grant panels and external reviews for the U.S. Department of Education, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes for Health, and various private foundations. The panel discussion was organized by Professor Andy Gordon in his role as Senior Advisor for Research Development and Debi Slatkin, Director for Special Projects. The faculty and staff on the panel included Alex Bowers, George Bonanno, Andy Gordon, Aaron Pallas, and Debi Slatkin.
