Research Administration Services (RAS)

As of May 6, 2014, Pediatric research (with an Emory Department of Pediatrics PI) will flow through the Pediatric RAS Unit.


A fundamental goal of the RAS unit is to ensure high-quality, consistent service and compliance in all aspects of research administration for our faculty.


Brief Overview:


  • The RAS Units are intended to provide one source for pre and post award research administration activities.
  • Clearly defined scope, roles, and responsibilities for RAS Units have been outlined, documented, and approved at the University level.
  • RAS staff receives training in order to provide a consistent, high level of knowledge and competency. These individuals will be strictly focused on research administration.
  • RAS staff will be divided into teams that focus on either pre-award, post-award or clinical trials, allowing for specific attention to each.
  • Central research administration offices (Office of Sponsored Programs and Office of Grants and Contracts) will still have defined roles in institutional compliance.
