UNC Research Funds
Various research funds are available through the university.
Office of Research Development
The Office of Research Development assists faculty members who seek to develop proposals for large, interdisciplinary projects or to apply for awards that limit submissions from the university.
For general inquiries and appointment requests, contact Ashley Mattheis. For University Research Council Grant information, contact Gail Whitfield, 919-962-7503. And for Limited Submissions information, contact Regina Bartolone, 919-962-7504.
Use of Human Subjects
UNC-CH's policy on education requires that all investigators using human subjects be certified. This includes all faculty, staff, and students.
UNC Internal Review of Grant Proposals
Before proposals are sent to a funding agency, most must undergo internal university review. (Exceptions are grants and fellowships that the sponsor specifically says are to be made to the individual investigator rather than to the institution.)
Some UNC departments have adequate resources to administer externally funded research projects while others do not. The Odum Institute administers grants for social science researchers whose projects require more support, or more sophisticated support, than their department can or wishes to provide.
