The Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) Office of Sponsored Research Administration (OSRA) supports faculty, staff, and students in their efforts to secure and grow sponsored research funding. This includes reviewing, submitting, negotiating, endorsing, and providing administrative oversight for proposals, awards, and contracts in accordance with applicable laws, policies, and regulations. OSRA is comprised of four distinct teams - Grants, Industry Contracts, Operations, and Subawards. The teams work collaboratively to support all sponsored research at WCM.

  • Reviewing and submitting grant proposals and federal contract bids
  • Liaising with sponsors on behalf of PIs and Academic Departments
  • Grant award review, negotiation and acceptance
  • Industry contract review and negotiations (e.g., SRAs, MTAs, DUAs, etc.)
  • Account creations for grant and funded contracts
  • Processing incoming and outgoing subawards
  • Sponsor prior approval requests (e.g., change in key personnel, no-cost extension, award transfer, etc.)
  • Award close-out (non-financial)
