Office of Sponsored Programs

Research is a primary mission of The University of Tennessee Health Science Center. The Office of Sponsored Programs at UTHSC provides support for the faculty and staff of the Health Science Center (including components at the UT Graduate School of Medicine in Knoxville and the Chattanooga Unit of the College of Medicine) in their efforts to obtain external funding for research and other sponsored projects, while ensuring compliance with UT policy, sponsor policy, and applicable law.

Whether you are submitting a proposal to develop a diagnostic tool to speed identification of Zika virus, working on a subaward proposal to another institution for a diabetes study, obtaining scientific material from a collaborator, disclosing a new drug compound invented in a UTHSC lab, planning a clinical trial on women's health or smoking cessation, or working on the next medical breakthrough, the staff in the OSP are here to help!
