Research Project Center

The Department of Medicine Research Project Center provides comprehensive research support services at each level of the research process, from preliminary ideas to funded research to closeout.  Sponsored research is conducted as a college and department function.  Research Project Center staff are available to directly provide needed services or facilitate referrals to individuals within the institution when appropriate.

The University of Toledo Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) is responsible for submitting to funding agencies proposals requesting support for research and other scholarly projects. Resulting awards are made to RSP, which administers them on behalf of faculty and staff at the University of Toledo. Research Project Center staff work with the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs and Grants Accounting on a regular basis and will support faculty members in this process.
