​Grants Management Office

The Grants Management Office serves as a central resource for the research community at the College of Dental Medicine during all pre- and post-award processes.

All sponsored projects (grants, contracts, industry clinical trials) are centrally managed by the Grants Management Office. This includes submission of sponsored project proposals by faculty or students and post-award financial and administrative management. The Grants Management Office must be notified of all research conducted at the College of Dental Medicine, sponsored or non-sponosored.

All grant proposals, including federal, private, foundation, or Columbia University internal grants, must be submitted for the Grants Management Office review 30 days prior to sponsor's deadline.
