Office of Research restructuring announcement
Dr. David P. Norton, Vice President for Research
Over the past year, the UF Office of Research has undergone some restructuring to better serve the needs of the UF research enterprise. The Office of Research is now composed of the following:
The Division of Sponsored Programs, formerly known as DSR, facilitates institutional approval for all extramural proposal submissions, accepts and administers grant awards, and negotiates contracts and other research-related agreements on behalf of the University of Florida.
The Division of Research Compliance supports and promotes ethical research practices at the University of Florida that fully comply with all federal, state, and local laws, and is responsible for coordinating institution-wide research compliance policy and procedure.
The Division of Research Program Development assists UF faculty and staff in the pursuit of internal and external research funding, coordinates internal funding programs, and assists in coordinating large interdisciplinary research initiatives.
The Division of Research Operations and Services provides support that underpins the campus-wide services that are part of the Office of Research portfolio
Other functions within the Office of Research such as institutional oversight and research communications remain unchanged.
