The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) provides support, guidance and resources to faculty pursuing original research.
The OVPR enables faculty research by fostering a vibrant research environment at SLU. Our goal is to lift many of the administrative burdens that accompany managing sponsored research so that faculty can focus on pursuing research itself. The OVPR can assist SLU faculty in the following areas:
Kenneth Olliff, Vice President for Research
Matthew Christian, Associate Vice President for Research and Chief of Staff
Jasmin Patel, Assistant Vice President, Research Strategy Group
Graeme Thomas, Executive Director, Research Innovation Group
Mark Haenchen, Executive Director, Research Integrity and Safety Group
Bridget Lally, Director, Research Accounting and Postaward Group
