The Office of Research Administration (ORA) at Villanova University provides service to faculty, staff, and students while protecting the institution in sponsored programs, technology transfer, and research compliance.
Each month, ORA recognizes a Principal Investigator (“PI”) who contributed positively to the administration of research at Villanova, including both grants administration and research compliance. PIs are nominated for: being proactive, improving processes, collaborating effectively, and demonstrating concern for quality. Recipients receive a small gift from ORA, and recognition to the Chair and Dean of their department/college.
Dr. Burge, was nominated for submitting two complete, well-written, and thoughtful human subjects research applications to the IRB in the last month. Dr. Burge demonstrated care for the subjects who will participate in studies on sensitive topics by carefully considering and applying human protections throughout her study designs in advance of the submissions. The result was faster throughput and a more streamlined IRB review of the studies.
Many thanks to Dr. Burge, and to the rest of the nominees for this month, for your positive contributions to Villanova!
