Grants and Contracts Office
The Grants and Contracts Office (GCO) of the Icahn School of Medicine is the centralized administrative office that oversees the sponsored programs application and award process and provides support to faculty regarding research activities. It documents policy, provides on-going information to faculty regarding sponsorship, policy changes, funding opportunities, and generally assists faculty in all aspects of the pre-award process. The GCO also collects data regarding faculty research performance and reports to senior management regarding institutional performance.
Every sponsored program and/or research proposal must be registered with the GCO. Evaluation by the GCO includes review for accuracy of administrative information and budget, as well as for compliance with Federal, State, Ntew York City, and Icahn School of Medicine regulations, such as those pertaining to biosafety, or to the use of human subjects, vertebrate animals, or recombinant DNA.
