Touro College and the Touro College and University System have a number of resources available to faculty investigators. This page provides links to key information to help full-time faculty interested in pursuing research projects, and seeking internal or external support.
General questions about research support and services can be directed to the Touro College Office of Sponsored Programs, where Glenn Davis serves as Director.
Research Support & Funding
Touro offers a number of intramural support programs for research. The Touro College Office of Sponsored Programs provides an array of services related to seeking external funding. A group of faculty volunteers is available for informal consultation about research methodology and statistics as well.
- Intramural Support: Each program has its own webpage. Information contained reflects the last competition held and is updated as each new application process is announced:
- External Support: Among the services provided by the Touro College Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) are access to a major funding opportunity database (InfoEd/SPIN) and coordinating proposal preparation and submission to sponsors.
