The Office of Sponsored Programs & Research
(OSPR) coordinates all aspects of research
at Towson University, from the identification
of funding opportunities to the development
of proposals, to compliance issues including
requirements for the protection of human
and animal subjects of research.
Proposals to external funding agencies must be submitted by the OSPR. Proposals will be submitted to a funding agency after the normal internal university proposal review and approval procedure has been followed and all of the necessary signatures and approvals are obtained.
Ongoing education and training in protection of human subjects is a federal requirement for anyone engaged in research.
*Please Note: OSPR is currently
revising our proposal review and approval
procedures and forms. For the most current Proposal Review
and Approval procedures, please e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Technologies that are conceived or developed by Towson University employees should be disclosed to the Office of University Counsel (OUC). The Invention Disclosure form provides information about your invention to provide the initial evaluation by OUC.
