An environment where research can thrive

We offer strong internal support to our researchers as they seek sources of funding. And our nationally recognized community partnerships offer opportunities for collaborative practice, including academic research grants and shared participation in evidence-based practice leadership and initiatives. We also have four research centers focused on improving the quality of health and life and a strong affiliation with the RESPECT Center.

Office of Research Support (ORS)

ORS is here to help IUSON’s researchers develop and carry out research and scholarly activities, advancing clinical and educational science and ultimately improving health. We offer educational programs, disseminate funding announcements, and provide expert consultation.

We can help you develop your ideas, create an action plan, plan and complete data analysis, and format and proof your finished products. We have content, topic, statistical, and editorial experts to help you at every point in your journey.

Pre-award services include application planning and development, budget preparation, analysis consultation, and comprehensive submission guidance including application formatting, review of agency guidelines, biosketch preparation, collection of letters of support, and assistance in writing about available institutional resources. We can also help you respond to reviewer comments prior to resubmission.

Once you are funded, we can help with announcing your award, preparing press releases, hiring personnel, interpreting funding agency and university policies, and other regulatory, operational, and fiscal aspects of project management.

Research opportunities for students

Our students make important and valuable contributions to research through undergraduate honors programs. As Traditional track IU Indianapolis or IU Bloomington BSN students, you may gain experience in research, evidence-based practice (EBP), and dissemination of scholarly work, working alongside experienced faculty researchers when you participate in honors options.

The collection and interpretation of real-world, on-site data is central to our graduate programs. Our PhD students are linked with faculty researchers who provide supportive mentoring throughout their entire program.
