The mission of the Office of the Vice Provost for Research is to partner with the broader Hopkins community to support high-impact research and initiatives by promoting a culture of diversity, creativity and innovation that is welcoming and affirming to all.
The Office of the Vice Provost for Research is responsible for the current and future health of the university’s research enterprise, including institutional research compliance, research development, undergraduate research, and cross-divisional research initiatives, such as the Bloomberg Distinguished Professorships, the Johns Hopkins Catalyst and Discovery Awards, and the President’s Frontier Award. We support important multidisciplinary, collaborative research projects, including the Signature Initiatives identified in the Rising to the Challenge Campaign and multidivisional proposals in response to RFAs.
We facilitate the Research Oversight Committee (ROC), comprising the divisional research deans, research administration directors and key university personnel, to strategically plan Johns Hopkins’ research infrastructure. We are also responsible for the university research programs administration that oversees policies, procedures and information systems for research grants.
