Office of Research and Graduate Education - College Research Office

Joel Baines, Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Education oversees research and research administration in the College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM). His leadership supports opportunities for faculty collaborations, implementation of research initiatives, communication and understanding of regulatory compliance, as well as dissemination of research activities conducted in the College.  Under his leadership, the College Research Office goals are to support the strategic research mission of the College and to facilitate the grant application process.

Laura Mathews, Administrative Assistant, provides support to the Associate Dean for Research & Graduate Education, the College's internal grant programs, and the Harry M. Zweig Memorial Fund for Equine Research.

Strategic Research Administration Activities:

Judy Wood, Director of Research Affairs, supports the strategic research activities by initiating and facilitating the delivery of research administration services and programs that impact research within the CVM.  Judy works closely with unit directors, faculty and administrators to advance research and research administration.   In particular, Judy facilitates strategic goals, promotes services for researchers to be successful in obtaining funding, provides expertise in understanding external regulatory and institutional requirements, and promotes institutional stewardship.

Proposal Submissions:

Kimberly Hayes, Grant & Contract Officer, directs the grant application submission process and provides research administration expertise, mentoring, and leadership.  Kimberly is supported by two college grant and contract representatives.   She has extensive experience working with all sponsoring agencies.  Kimberly manages the balance of adhering to University policy, sponsor requirements, and the need to communicate with faculty and departments. 

Jenna Bush and Brigid Shipman are grants and contracts representatives within the CVM.  They work with the dedicated research coordinators in each department to provide administrative guidance in the development of proposals for research funding, exclusive of corporate funding.  All proposals must be submitted through the department's research coordinator to the college grant and contract representative. Faculty submitting proposals need to inform their departmental research coordinator of that intention. In collaboration with the department's research coordinator, the College Representatives will review proposals for compliance with Cornell and sponsor guidelines.
