About the Office of Research

The Office of Research supports and enhances the research programs of the faculty at the School of Medicine through a number of programs and core facilities. Specifically, we arrange the creation of grant advisory committees for all faculty who seek to maximize their funding opportunities from federal and state agencies; help to bridge gaps in funding, and encourage the pursuit of novel research programs by supporting pilot grants.

Our incoming and first-year graduate students can find extensive lists of faculty working in specific research areas, either to arrange opportunities for laboratory rotations or to find faculty for participation in their graduate advisory committee.

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs provides career and professional development opportunities, assists with career exploration, and advocates for policies and resources to support postdocs at the Texas A&M Health Science Center.

Faculty and staff can access the Office of Research support materials on our SharePoint site.

The School of Medicine provides research opportunities for undergraduate students. These opportunities include "independent study" research throughout the semester, research undergraduate assistantships, and the full-time, 10-week Summer Research Program, which prepares students from any US institution for a future career in biomedical research.
