Upon receiving a grant, there is a host of information that PIs must be aware of and numerous resources that researchers can use to implement and manage their grants and their research projects in general. This section aims to assist you in implementing your research program.
- The Office of Regulatory Affairs and Research Compliance – Quality Improvement Program (ORARC-QIP) offers a wide range of services to help investigators at all stages of research planning and implementation, including: study consultation services, study coordinator orientation, assistance with IRB submission, in-service training and education, clinicaltrials.gov support, and development of study management tools. The ORARC – QIP also administers a Loaner Study Coordinator program, free-of-charge, which provides study coordinators who can work with PIs directly on all aspects of study development and implementation. To request one of the above services, please complete a Service Request, available at https://apps.sph.harvard.edu/publisher/forms/index.cfm?id=56927274-c5ed-4041-8054-6451ef216664. To learn more, contact QIP Director Leslie Howes at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-432-2153.
- Harvard Catalyst provides no-cost consultation services to all researchers in the Harvard community. Some areas of consultation that might be relevant to HSPH researchers include: biostatistics, genomics and bioinformatics, health disparities and CBPR research.
- HSPH and Harvard Catalyst partner institutions offer core scientific facilities to support innovative research at HSPH by providing highly specialized services, equipment and staff that would otherwise be too expensive for a single laboratory or department to provide.
- If you have received an NIH grant, you must ensure that you are compliant with NIH Public Access Policy when it comes to publishing manuscripts. HMScholar assists you in meeting those guidelines.
