Office of Research and Sponsored Programs

Reporting to MUSC’s Vice President for Research, the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) assists faculty and staff with the administrative processes involved with obtaining and conducting extramurally funded programs.  ORSP reviews and approves grant and contract proposal submissions, reviews, negotiates and officially accepts all sponsored program agreements/awards and provides post-award support services and guidance with the goal of maintaining regulatory, institutional and sponsor compliance.  ORSP serves as the official point of contact for sponsored programs, and is the authorized signatory for all sponsored project activities at MUSC.
