It is my pleasure to welcome Renee Gonzales as the new Interim Executive Director of UNC’s Office of Sponsored Research (OSR). Reporting to me, Renee will lead the OSR’s daily operations, including proposal review, award setup and management, financial reporting and invoicing, as well as audit and compliance.
Renee comes to us from Texas where she served for many years as the Executive Director of Sponsored Programs at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Prior to her work at MD Anderson, Renee was with Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, where she served in many capacities ranging from Pre Award, Post Award, Compliance Officer, and also as Director of Sponsored Research. Renee’s experience in the various areas of Research Administration will be a valuable asset to UNC as she continues our efforts to transform and improve the OSR.
Renee holds a BBA and MPA from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and is also a Certified Research Administrator (CRA).
