Office of Research


The University of South Florida and the College of Public Health has a distinguished history of discovery of new knowledge. The Office of Research has responsibility for the College’s research enterprise, encompassing a broad spectrum of services. We provide pre-award and post-award administrative services for sponsored projects and together we work to foster the continuation of those creative endeavors and to promote an environment that sustains the highest standards of scholarship, health and safety.

Our research team oversees the management of its research programs and assists investigators seeking external funding, promotes interdisciplinary research and manages awards throughout the sponsored research life cycle – from proposal development through financial administration and award closeout. We serve as a liaison with the USF Division of Sponsored Research and Research Financial Management.
