Welcome to Penn State Research Development

The mission of Research Development is to further develop and strengthen sponsored research at the Penn State College of Medicine in the basic biomedical and clinical sciences. The primary focus of these efforts is the acquisition of new knowledge that will advance the promotion of better health and the prevention, treatment and cure of disease.

We pursue our mission in part through the identification and distribution of relevant funding opportunity announcements. In addition, we work to improve the competitiveness of proposals from the College of Medicine and to encourage and facilitate collaborative interdisciplinary research among basic scientists and clinical investigators at Penn State Hershey and investigators at other Penn State campuses.

Research Development also administers several internal grant programs that support bridge, pilot and feasibility studies conducted by College of Medicine investigators. In collaboration with the Office of the Senior Vice President for Research, we coordinate the nomination process for limited submission applications from the College of Medicine. We pursue these and related activities that strengthen the College of Medicine's research programs in partnership with other units of the Research Mission and departments throughout Hershey Medical Center and Penn State University.
