Scholarship
  1. Broad Definition
    Scholarship is the development and dissemination of new knowledge or of new insights into existing knowledge; or competent mastery of one or more of the academic disciplines resulting from continued systematic study.
    Scholarship activity also may consist of innovative conceptualizations or novel solution to health problems that have received national recognition; or of research on and application of new concepts in biomedical education.
    Regardless of its form, then candidate's scholarship must provide promise of continued creativity. Publications in refereed journals and research funding awards are the primary evidence of scholarship
  2. General Clinical Research Center
    The Emory University General Clinical Research Center (GCRC) program provides a controlled environment for Emory faculty conducting quality patient-oriented research. The GCRC includes unites at Emory University Hospital and a satellite GCRC at Grady Memorial Hospital. The GCRC is staffed and funded through an NIH grant from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR Mo1-RR00039)
  3. Office of Research Administration
    The Office of Research was created in 1996 to foster excellence in research throughout all the unites of the University. The mission of the Office of Research Administration is to provide exceptional research administration in support of excellence in research, in concurrence with the mission of the University.
  4. Office of Sponsored Programs
    The Office of Sponsored Programs provides PreAward support and guidance to faculty and staff for all sponsored program activities. The Office of Sponsored Programs, as an integral part of the University's research infrastructure, collaborates with the Emory community to identify, obtain and administer extramural funding in support of the mission of the University.
  5. Manuscript Development Program
    The manuscript development program was launched as pilot program in 2002 to address some of the changes in the landscape in scholarly publishing. The program supports faculty who are publishing books in this changing environment. The typically, Emory authors who choose to work with this program wish to make their scholarship more accessible to somewhat broader to interdisciplinary audiences. As the program evolved, we discovered the need to help junior faculty learn more about the publishing process and craft their first book proposals. We also consult with authors on issues related to the writing and revision process, as well as offer occasional workshops on issues related to scholarly publishing.
  6. Institutional Review Board
    The Emory University Institutional Review Board is a research oversight committee charged with assuring, both in advance and by periodic review, that appropriate steps are taken to protect the rights and welfare of humans participating as subjects in approved research studies.
  7. Grady Research Oversight Committee
    A complete research protocol must be submitted and approved by the Grady Research Oversight Committee before research can begin in the Grady Health System
