Education and Training in Research Administration (ETRA) is a new office at Weill Cornell Research led by Adam Garriga, Chief Administrative Officer of Research. ETRA is dedicated to bring learning opportunties to support to research administrators in the complex environment of research administration. Education and training are the cornerstones for professional development and excellence at work. ETRA offers comprehensive educational programs integrating critical information, strengthening one’s knowledge and skills, and providing useful tools. The educational programs offer by ETRA will provide higher visibility to existing trainings and guides from the central offices of Weill Cornell Medicine Research such as OSRA (Office of Sponsored Research Administration), IRB office (Institutional Review Board), CTSC (Clinical and Translational Science Center), JCTO (Joint Clinical Trials Office), IACUC (Institutional Animal Care and Use Committe), RARC (Research Animal Resource Center) and the Finance Department. ETRA acts as a connective matrix between WCM central offices to support the success of research administrators, faculty and post doctorates in the administration of research.
E2RA, which stands for Education & Excellence for Research Administrators is the first educational program in Research Administration that was launched at Weill Cornell Medicine in the Spring 2016. The E2RA course is an incredible opportunity for professional development in Research Administration at Weill Cornell Medicine.
