Pharmacy awarded research development grant from NIH

The USF College of Pharmacy recently earned the Biomedical/Behavioral Research Administration Development (BRAD) Award funded by the National Institute of Health.

The 5-year award is considered “Rx for Research Initiatives” and aims to encourage the development of leaders in research administration at non-research intensive institutions that play prominent roles in educating the next generation of biomedical and biobehavioral scientists.

The funds help build “offices of opportunity” for faculty with an interest in research, and to develop and implement faculty-friendly pre- and post-award and compliance processes.

The newly launched USF College of Pharmacy will use the funds to provide training, education, and resources to establish and sustain institutional research administration infrastructure.
