Research Navigation

The Research Navigation team partners with Manne Research Institute research faculty to identify priorities, guide faculty through institutional research processes, and direct them to relevant resources across the research enterprise.  

Our Navigation Team

As a part of the Office of Research Development (ORD), the Research Scientist Navigators are an integral part of Manne Research Institute. The navigators share information with stakeholders across research administration to provide research faculty with the most up-to-date information available regarding resources across the research pillars. We currently have navigators for the basic and preclinical science pillar, the community, population health, and outcomes pillar, and clinical and community trials pillar.

Engaging with Research Navigation

The primary function of the navigators is to be the first point of contact for all research support needs across all Manne Research Institute faculty. There are three pathways by which faculty interact with their navigators: new faculty are welcomed by their navigator as part of the orientation process, faculty bring specific issues to the ORD or their navigator for assistance, or through strategic navigator outreach. Ahead of faculty meetings, the navigators create and review faculty dossiers that include information about current and past research, funding, and known issues.
