Introducing: The Research Navigator

Dear Colleagues,  

I am excited to announce the launch of the Research Navigator program, an initiative over a year in the making and one that will transform the way we accomplish our research and scholarship at the University of Miami.

The Research Navigator is a new paradigm in research support for the University of Miami - a concierge service that connects faculty to the right resources, right now.  It is one on one, centralized support designed to allow our faculty and staff to focus on research, not roadblocks.

Your Navigator will provide expertise along every step in the Research Lifecycle, from idea to grant writing to sharing your work with the world.  Below, we share some additional information about the new program.  I cannot wait to see what great things we can accomplish together.  

All my best, 
Erin Kobetz, PhD, MPH
Vice Provost for Research + Scholarship
