Staff and resources for A&S Faculty seeking research funding

Do You Need Money for Research?

The A&S Research Office can help! If you have a research idea, we can help you at any or all stages to develop the idea, find a potential sponsor, assist in writing the proposal, develop your budget, fill out the paperwork required by U of L and the sponsor, make sure everything is done properly, and get it in for institutional review by the U of L deadline. Our goal is your success.

Dr. Robert Buchanan, Associate Dean of Research in Arts & Sciences, is a full professor in the chemistry department with many years of experience in securing funding for his research program as well as assisting others to obtain research funding. Diane Penrod, Research Manager, works with Dr. Buchanan processing PCFs and provides expertise on budgeting issues when needed, especially on indirect cost and faculty effort calculations. She also serves as the Unit Business Manager Senior for the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, and is the primary contact for A&S UBMs with grant-related questions. Teresa Wilkins and Susanna Cornett are Grant Manager Specialists; Teresa focuses on the natural sciences, and Susanna on the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Both can help with developing ideas, writing proposals, ensuring compliance with grant guidelines and university requirements, building budgets, and completing the paperwork for submissions. Both can also help you find possible funders! Holly Hogue, Administrative Specialist, works with Dr. Buchanan on PCFs, develops the website, and generally handles the administration of the Research Office.
