A Research Collaboration and Training Program

General Information

The Research Office administrates the Valley Research Partnership (VRP), which funded collaborative grants from VRP partner institutions across the Phoenix area, including the College and the VRP affiliates listed below. The goal of this program was to develop cross-institutional research collaborations to enhance discovery, extramural research funding, accelerate career development, and improve healthcare. It also provided resources to engage trainees (medical students/graduate students/residents/fellows/post-docs) in significant biomedical research projects. 

*Please note: This program is now completed and there will not be any RFAs or additional rounds of funding in the future.
