The Johns Hopkins Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine is consistently one of the top funded anesthesiology departments in the country. A variety of funding opportunities are available throughout the year for faculty and  fellows. Extramural support is available through governmental (NIH, NSF) and private foundations, and intramural support is available via departmental programs such as the StAAR awards.  Anyone interested in applying to a granting agency should contact the Research and Grants Office to coordinate the submission process.

The Stimulating and Advancing ACCM Research (StAAR) Awards aim to allocate departmental investment funds that promote the career and program development of its faculty. StAAR awards are administered to faculty through a comprehensive, peer-reviewed process to support innovative research proposals that have a high likelihood of being leveraged into extramural funding. There are two grant submission deadlines each year for awards that fund a period of 12 months.

The members of the Sponsored Projects Office assist faculty members from the grant proposal pre-award aspects of grant funding through the post-award process. In the pre-award stage, the highly trained analysts assist faculty in developing the budget proposal and complete the required forms for NIH grants and various foundations. Furthermore, they act as liaisons between the faculty members and the Johns Hopkins Office of Research Administration to ensure that grants are accurately submitted to the various agencies.

In addition, the financial analysts monitor all expenditures for each grant, including salaries, and report to the faculty member on a regularly basis. The office also assists with progress reports, close-out of grants, and various other finance-related activities.

In the post-award cycle, the Sponsored Projects Office is responsible for closing the accounts and assisting the investigators in preparing the final accounting reports, which will be sent to the various foundations and agencies.
