About the Institute

Administrative Team

The Research Institute’s Administrative Team assists, mentors, and nurtures faculty, students, and particularly clinicians in applying for and conducting sponsored research projects, both intramurally and extramurally, thus developing a stronger research environment throughout the University. Apart from actively conducting research, the Administrative Team also contributes to the educational mission of the University by providing research training to interns, residents, faculty, and other osteopathic and biomedical degree programs.
