Office of Research and Grants
Who We Are
The Office of Research and Grants, under the direction of Associate Dean for Research and Innovation, Darlene Berryman, PhD, LD, RD, provides the infrastructure, leadership, training and resources to promote integrated scholarly activity, enhance research productivity, and increase external funding of research programs throughout the Heritage College.
The mission of the Office of Research and Grants is to provide leadership, support, and coordination of all research and scholarly activities to faculty, staff, and students of the Heritage College. Our office represents the college’s research and program interests through interactions with the Office of Graduate Medical Education, Ohio University, the State of Ohio, the osteopathic profession, federal and private external granting agencies, and the public.
Research at the Heritage College
The Heritage College houses a diverse, talented and productive array of faculty, staff, students and institutes that are engaged in scholarly works. This places the Heritage College in a very good position to be a leader among osteopathic medical schools in research.
We also recognize the importance of fostering collaborative research with partners both within Ohio University and external to the university. To this end, the Heritage College continually works to facilitate the expansion of our research portfolio with partners such as OhioHealth to provide additional opportunities for our faculty and staff to engage in research.
