The Research Advisory Board was initiated in December of 2012. The 17-member board was charged with providing faculty advice and recommendations to the vice president for research and innovation on matters pertaining to the development of the University of Oregon as a center for research and innovation excellence. In January 2015, the Research Advisory Board was reformulated to report to the Provost’s office and enlarged to 20 members. The Provost delegated responsibility for the routine work of the Board to the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation. Faculty Co-Chairs for the RAB in 2015 are Professor Lauren Lindstrom (Education) and Professor Ken Prehoda (Institute of Molecular Biology).
Membership is on a two-year basis with half the initial members appointed for a three-year period to create a staggered rotation. The board meets monthly. UO faculty members engaged in research may indicate their interest in participating on the board by emailing the VPRI at firstname.lastname@example.org.
