In a recent announcement from the chancellor, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research has new leadership, and Dr. Penny Gordon-Larsen, Associate Dean for Research at the Gillings School of Global Public Health and Carla Smith Chamblee Distinguished Professor of Global Nutrition will serve as interim Vice Chancellor for Research. The Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) Information Sheet reflects this change in Institutional Official (IO).
Proposals or amendments submitted on or after March 12, 2022 should list Penny Gordon-Larsen as the Institutional Official. Any changes to award information effective on March 11, 2022, and prior should represent Terry Magnuson as the IO.
In the coming weeks, OSR will continue to update applicable federal systems to reflect the change in IO as well as other sponsor systems utilized for sponsored programs administration. If there are any priority requests for assistance related to this change, please contact ResAdminOSR@unc.edu.
