CONNECTING FACULTY’S IDEAS WITH FUNDING TRENDS AND OPPORTUNITIES
Thinking about Research Development:
Associate Vice Chancellor for Research and Director of the Office of Research Development, Dr. Eliana Perrin, M.D., M.P.H.
“So many of the world’s problems these days are complex and nuanced and are not going to be tackled by one discipline, one department or even one school, even on a campus as great as Carolina’s,” Perrin says. “I’m trying to build interdisciplinary bridges throughout campus, combining units that haven’t traditionally worked together to create a one-plus-one-equals-three environment across the university. We’re also going to try to build out our program and foster more alliances with other universities and partnerships with industry that make sense for our research mission.” From the Institute for Arts & Humanities Featured Fellow Spotlight
