Established by the division of Research and Innovation in 2020, the mission of the Research Academy is to build a sustainable research community and elevate research excellence at UAMS. It aspires to create innovative care models and transformative breakthroughs in medicine. This mission aligns with UAMS Vision 2029 to make Arkansas the healthiest state in the region.
As our first initiative, Research and Innovation has partnered with the Translational Research Institute to launch a Mentored Grant-Writing Program for its Research Academy Scholars. The goal of this initiative is to expand research grant success through a structured grant-writing program and dedicated expert mentorship.
The Research Academy and workshop are sponsored by UAMS’ Division of Research & Innovation, Translational Research Institute, and Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute. For questions about the program, please contact Paul Duguid (firstname.lastname@example.org).
