The RDO offers one-stop “concierge” services to connect researchers and scholars with research administrators and other resources; accelerate discovery and innovation by supporting collaboration, creation, and proposal development; and minimize the administrative burden of research on faculty and staff. The RDO team hosts a wide variety of professional development programs and networking events throughout the year.
 
These meetings, facilitated by the Grant Accounting Office and the Division of Sponsored Programs, are intended to improve communication and identify ways to improve business processes related to grant administration.
 
The Division of Sponsored Programs offers a variety of training opportunities for faculty, staff, and students involved in proposal submission and project management. 
 
The University of Iowa Institutional Review Board (IRB) and Human Subjects Office (HSO) offer a variety of training and educational opportunities for investigators, delegates and research team members. 
 
These research seminars are highlighted by the CCOM Office of Research.
