Pre-Award

  • Memorial Team Members or medical staff members with a particular funding need must complete a funding search request and submit it to the grants resource division. One of our specialists will conduct an on-going search for funding for the project.

    If you need additional assistance or if you have a specific grant for which you wish to apply, call 912-350-6373.

    Proposal Process

    When the Memorial Health University Medical Center Office of Sponsored Programs finds appropriate funding sources for you, we will send you the details. If you choose to move forward with the proposal, our grants resource division Team Members will work with the principal investigator, research staff, department, and medical staff to facilitate the proposal routing process.

    Before any proposal is mailed or electronically submitted to a funding agency, it must first be routed through the Memorial Health internal review process.

    If no funding is found, we will continue to search for appropriate funding until you tell us that you no longer need funding sources.

    New Financial Conflict of Interest Disclosure Information

    New requirements for disclosure of financial conflict of interest in research on proposals submitted to, and awards funded by NIH and other public health service agencies, and for management and reporting of resulting financial conflicts of interest took effect on Friday, August 24, 2012.

    Memorial Health University Medical Center, Inc.’s Financial Conflict of Interest in Research policy (HR 1061), addresses these new requirements. The full text of the new regulation titled “Responsibility of Applicants for Promoting Objectivity in Research for which Public Health Service Funding is Sought and Responsible Prospective Contractors,” which was published in the Federal Register (Vol. 76, No. 165, August 25, 2011), is available from the NIH Conflict of Interest homepage.
