Research at Geisinger is supported by an administrative infrastructure that provides operational, financial, and managerial support to researchers, as well as human resources compliance and training.
This infrastructure helps the research community comply with the myriad requirements that govern research, and provides the administrative, operational, financial, compliance and regulatory infrastructure for both research at Geisinger and projects with external funding.
The Research Administration helps balance compliance and regulatory requirements with researcher needs and facilitates collaborations and partnerships within the Geisinger system and with external entities. Some operations are directly overseen by Research Administration, while others are managed indirectly by the team's coordination and oversight.
Research Administration includes the Office of Sponsored Projects, Research Contracts, Investigator Initiated Research Operations (IIRO), Research Finance, Technology Transfer, the Human Research Protections Program, the Institutional Biosafety Committee, and Research Compliance.
Research Administration also works with Geisinger's legal counsel, contracting, government relations, and with administrative and business development units in Geisinger's research centers and clinical divisions.
