Research Concierge Service
The Research Concierge Service (RCS) is a unit within Research Development that is dedicated to increasing the number, quality, and success rate of external funding submissions. The RCS supports investigators that have a faculty or staff appointment at the Penn State College of Medicine, which is located on the 550-acre campus of Penn State Hershey. The College of Medicine is comprised of 24 academic departments – 8 basic science departments and 16 clinical departments – that collectively contribute to an annual portfolio of approximately $100 million in funded research. The RCS helps researchers make connections with potential collaborators, facilitates access to technical support, provides guidance on funding strategy, and helps manage the development of large proposals. Services are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. To learn more about the RCS and how it can help you, visit the About Us section of this website.
