With multiple high-performing research institutions that have received tens of millions of dollars in research funding, Banner Research is a place where innovation meets technology. Research grants and partnerships enable us to create synergies and make unprecedented medical breakthroughs through high-quality, collaborative clinical research projects that bring new treatments and preventative therapies to the forefront for clinical use.
The Sponsored Projects Office was established to develop translational research at Banner Health, position Banner as a research leader in the communities it serves and support all Banner investigators in the initiation and funding of their research endeavors.
For prospective Banner investigators, OGSDA is here to support you during the proposal stage and in all phases of project development and post award administration.
The principal investigator (PI) or program manager (PM) sets the vision that will drive the overall development of the proposal. OGSDA will work closely with the PI/PM in the development of the proposal. Success can only be achieved when the PI is an active participant.
The PI/PM of an award accepts primary responsibility for the conduct of the award, for technical compliance, completion of programmatic work, fiscal stewardship of sponsor funds and proper conduct of the project in accordance with applicable federal, state, organization and sponsor requirements.
The Sponsored Projects team will work to be a catalyst for research and programmatic pre- and post-award needs. Grant managers will be available to assist in identifying funding sources, prepare proposals and review written proposals to ensure they are thorough, complete and comply with regulations set by the sponsor organization and Banner Health, proposal submission and follow-up. Grant managers will also assist with addressing the requirements governing the award, award negotiation, award set up and post-award management.
Banner provides the infrastructure for all Banner investigators. As the applicant organization, Banner is responsible for verifying its eligibility and the accuracy, validity, and conformity with the most current institutional guidelines of all the administrative, fiscal and scientific information in the application, including the Facilities and Administrative rate. Deliberate withholding, falsification or misrepresentation of information could result in administrative actions, such as withdrawal of an application, suspension and/or termination of an award, debarment of individuals, as well as possible criminal penalties. The signer further certifies that the applicant organization will be accountable both for the appropriate use of any funds awarded and for the performance of the grant-supported project or activities resulting from this application. The grantee institution may be liable for the reimbursement of funds associated with any inappropriate or fraudulent conduct of the project activity.
Sponsored Projects will engage with the PI/PM as early on in the process as possible. Sponsored Projects must receive notice of PI/PM intent to apply for a grant no later than four weeks before the submission deadline in order to provide adequate time to provide the best service possible.
