Each year, OACA Faculty Research Development grants are awarded to support new or expanding interdisciplinary research that addresses significant clinical issues, is innovative, and has a high potential for return on investment.
In 2021, the grant program received 27 applications. A group of 44 reviewers from across the University worked diligently to identify the grant recipients who were awarded up to $200,000 in funds.
