OU-Tulsa Research Resources

Researchers from OU Health Sciences Center programs and OU Norman-based programs work together make a difference in the communities we serve. Members of the University of Oklahoma team are ready to help you further your research agenda.

Dr. Kent Teague, the OU-Tulsa Assistant Vice President for Research, leads the research efforts on the Tulsa campus. 

Health Sciences Center Programs at OU-Tulsa

The Vice President for Research at the OU Health Sciences Center oversees and manages administration for all research activities at OUHSC and works with university leadership to establish research and scientific development priorities. The VPR oversees the Office of Research Administration, Comparative Medicine, and OUHSC Core Laboratories.

The Office of Research Administration (ORA) serves as a central resource to faculty and staff of both the Oklahoma City and Tulsa Health Sciences Center campuses for all aspects of research and service contracts.

Each faculty member is assigned a sponsored programs administrator (SPA) who provides assistance with the internal routing process. The SPA provides broad support with proposal preparation and form completion, and proposal review and sign-off.

Once the sponsored programs research is approved for funding, the SPA prepares, reviews, and negotiates incoming grant-related contracts and subawards. They also provide post-award assistance with rebudgets requiring sponsor approval, extensions, and carry-forward requests and compliance.

Please take a look the ORA grants FAQ and contracts and professional services FAQ for more information.
