Director's Message

The Anesthesiology, Brain Health, Orthopaedics, and Surgical Services (ABOSS) RAS launched in September 2015.  As Director, I am excited about our ability to provide faculty with high-level support based on the experience, knowledge, and skills of our team.  Our goal is to provide continuous and superior pre and post-award research administration through collaborations with faculty and department leadership.  We provide services based on clearly defined roles and responsibilities in established standard operating procedures.  To ensure ongoing effectiveness of these services, our team is committed to participating in training and continuing education. 

In alignment with RAS Central Operations, our mission is to provide ongoing customer-focused, consistent, compliant, cost-effective, collaborative, and continuously improved services.
