Research Operations and Administrative Rounds (ROAR)

For over 10 years, the Office of Research Affairs (ORA) has conducted ROAR meetings to provide timely information to grant administrators, research administrators, and other research support staff who help investigators prepare funding proposals, manage clinical research, and administer awarded funds. There are 3 ROAR meeting “tracks” – grants, contracts, and special topics.
