*School of Medicine Center

SOM Center Guidelines

The designation of “School Center” was established by the UCI Office of Research as a means of offering the flexibility for faculty, predominately within a particular school, to create research units that suit their needs and areas of expertise. The School of Medicine, with a faculty of wide-ranging and diverse expertise, encourages its faculty to form partnerships within the SOM for the purpose of pursuing a research initiative that can be strengthened by the establishment of a School Center. The guidelines and application to establish a School of Medicine-based research center can be downloaded here.

Additional information regarding UCI Organized Research Units (ORUs) and Centers can be found on the UCI Office of Research webpages.
