The Research Concierge provides complimentary consultative services to faculty and staff at The Ohio State University and Nationwide Children’s Hospital to navigate the complex research ecosystem and to connect with experts, resources and services at the CCTS and beyond. Since inception, the research concierge has assisted with hundreds of requests submitted by faculty, staff, students and the community.
Triage and funneling of requests towards CCTS programs; often the first point of contact for the CCTS, referral to centers, programs, cores, shared services and other resources across the OSU and NCH campuses; creative problem solver and integration support to resolve research concerns.
Identify and promote funding opportunities; match investigators with specialized faculty expertise for concept development and team science; communication liaison to address research needs rather than bounce from person to person looking for answers; assists with design, analysis, data collection and management plans, ethics considerations and regulatory plans; and to identify gaps and create new services to enhance research operations and efficiency.
