Cluster Research Administrators

Four Cluster Research Administrators, reporting directly to the Vice Provost for Research, provide concierge services to faculty with respect to all aspects of the research experience. 

The CRAs provide a bridge between Principal Investigators and the research lifecycle services provided by various Main Campus departments, including ORSSPFO, the IRBOIP, and more. They also participate in various committees and working groups: GU-PASS, GMS and others to help develop and streamline new and existing processes.

Please visit How To Work With Your CRA for additional information
on the variety of services that CRAs can provide to PIs

In accordance with the new University guidance regarding COVID-19, the CRAs will be moving to a telework model. In an effort to offer continuous support they will be available via a variety of remote connections:

  • Georgetown Gmail
  • Zoom meetings
  • Google Hangouts – connect using your CRA’s GU email/NetID
  • Call your CRA’s office phone number, which is forwarded to their home/cell phone

Each CRA is assigned a cluster of departments.
