Resources for Researchers

Our faculty and staff can assist individuals affiliated with CCHS in the following areas: IRB applications, research methods and design, statistical analysis, data collection and management, manuscript development, research poster production and grant applications.

We will help identify your research aims and objectives in addition to team members with which to collaborate. Please contact Martha Crowther, PhD, MPH, at or 205-348-7802, who can help you facilitate connections between faculty who might not otherwise have the opportunity to collaborate.

If a funding agency has contacted you, or you have identified a call/application you want to submit a proposal to, please contact Susan Page at (205) 348-5570 or for help.
