Office for Evaluation
The Office for Evaluation is available to help faculty members develop an evaluation component for their training programs. It provides grant development consultation, tracking systems, and infrastructure in which to conduct the evaluation of trainees. For faculty who are applying for a T grant, the ICRE provides additional resources for a competitive grant application.
- Research on Careers
The Research on Careers Committee focuses on the evaluation of the career development and success of trainees. Under the Office for Evaluation, the committee has created a sophisticated mechanism and rigorous follow-up structure to track the progress of trainees and scholars. It has also developed a theoretical model for the career trajectory of trainees and scholars and can help faculty members apply this model to their training programs.
- T32 and T35 Training Programs
- The University of Pittsburgh is committed to increasing and enhancing its training programs that support predoctoral, postdoctoral, and short-term research training experiences for individuals who are preparing for research careers. Under the direction of the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Sponsored Research Training Programs, the Office for Evaluation has established a comprehensive Web-based resource that includes grant opportunities, information about funded training grants at the University of Pittsburgh, and resources to help investigators prepare T32 and T35 proposals and evaluate their programs. For more information on NIH NRSA T32 and T35 Institutional Training Grants at the University of Pittsburgh or assistance for University of Pittsburgh faculty interested in submitting a T32 or T35 grant proposal, please click here.
