Research Administration and Development

Tufts research administration infrastructure is comprised of central offices within the Office of the Vice Provost for Research (OVPR), as well as local research administrators within schools and centers. Central Pre-Award and Central Post-Award within the OVPR facilitate research and compliance by providing central pre-award and post-award services. Both offices work with local research administrators to support investigators in pursuing and managing sponsored funding. The Office of Research Development supports investigators in the development of proposals for sponsored funding via training, grantsmanship editing, tools, and templates.
