Research Administration

Research is one of the primary missions of UT Southwestern Medical Center. The various offices within Research Administration exist to support and promote research conducted by faculty, staff, and students at UT Southwestern and our partner hospitals. 

We offer pre-award administrative services for grants and research contracts (including clinical trials), advice about regulatory matters, and facilitation of partnerships with entities in the corporate, government, and non-profit sectors. We also provide technical assistance to researchers and study staff to support their responsible stewardship of research resources.
