Consulting Services

Dr. Israel Goldberg of Health Research Associates, Inc. is available to assist UTHSC faculty with grant-writing needs. Dr. Goldberg is under contract with the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and has provided consultation that proved invaluable for the successful awarding of a number of NIH grants to UTHSC faculty. Dr. Goldberg is available to assist faculty with individual grants, as well as training grants and other programmatic funding. Dr. Goldberg has addressed funding issues related to clinical, basic science and translational research.

In addition to his scheduled visits to campus each year, long-distance consultation services can also be accessed by phone/e-mail. These services are being provided for the campus in order to facilitate the submission of more grant applications that will be approved for funding. Therefore, faculty are encouraged to use this important resource and to seek consultation during the very earliest stages of grant preparation.
