OCR will continue to work in partnership with the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) in addressing the needs of clinical research teams.
Since 2012, Ms. Gray has served as the Director for the Division of Sponsored Programs (DSP) within UF Research, having joined this office in 2011.

While serving as Interim Director of OCR, Ms. Gray will continue in her role as Director of DSP.
The University will be launching a national search for a permanent director of OCR in the coming weeks.
Please join us in thanking Stephanie Gray for taking on this important role for the UF clinical research enterprise.
