Department of Medicine Office of Research

As an academic department within the Cumming School of Medicine, we are committed to the highest quality research for the benefit of our patients and society as a whole. Here you will find information and links to support academic research through the University of Calgary and Alberta Health Services (AHS). Additional UCalgary resources are outlined in this section’s sub-pages.

The Calgary Centre for Clinical Research (CCCR) provides centralized support services and helps investigators navigate the clinical research process and assist with study administration from startup to closure. Department of Medicine has many members who are also members who contribute significantly to research institutes across the Cumming School of Medicine.

AHS resources for researchers can be accessed through the following website or by emailing research.administration@ahs.ca, as well, additional Research/Project Support Services can be found at the W21C website.

The intent of the Department’s Research team is to help members, especially new faculty members, navigate research-related processes (i.e. funding application, legal, ethics, research accounting) and foster research collaborations between Department members and scientists across the University of Calgary.

We have established links to Grant Development and Research Facilitation in the Office of the Associate Dean, Research (OADR) in the CSM. The OADR Grant Development and Research Facilitation team consists of Jenna Slobozian, Cert RA (j.slobozian@ucalgary.ca) the Manager of Grant Development, as well as Research Grant Development Officers, Clint Westgard (chwestga@ucalgary.ca) and Brandi Povitz (brandi.povitz@ucalgary.ca). This team is your first point of contact and support for external funding agency applications. They are interested in helping our faculty members with any and all aspects of their research grant applications, so if you have a question please do not hesitate to reach out.
