Committee Composition

The committee consists of seven members: three full-time faculty elected by the Faculty Assembly, three full-time faculty appointed by the Dean. The Associate Dean for Research will serve as an ex-officio member. The Committee elects the chairperson and vice chairperson from among the members. The vice chairperson will become chairperson upon completion of the chairperson’s term.

Standing Committee Charge

As stated in the Constitution and Bylaws, it is the responsibility of this committee to stimulate interest in research by faculty members and students, review stimulus grant applications and to communicate to students and faculty members the availability of research opportunities. Additionally, this standing committee is to function in an advisory role to the Dean and the Associate Dean for Research and to identify mechanisms that will enhance the national reputation of the College of Dentistry in basic, applied, and clinical research.

Additional Charge from the Dean for 2013–2014

This year I am charging the Research Committee with the following tasks:

  1. Continue to review applications to the Research Track and Seed Grant Program.
  2. Review the 2013 Summer Research Program and make recommendations for next year’s program.
  3. Continue to assess the effectiveness of seed grants funded over the last three years and provide recommendations to strengthen the review process or the program.
  4. Continue to review Distinguished Scientist Lecture series requests consistent with Office of Research guidelines.
  5. Continue your evaluation of IT support of research endeavors in the college, interface with the IT Steering Committee to explore how the Integrated Research Database (IRD) and the Integrated Data Repository (IDR) and development of methods to retrieve information from AxiUm for research purposes are progressing.
  6. Complete your survey of faculty regarding their interest in clinical research and obstacles they face in conducting it.
  7. Work with the Associate Dean for Research to explore additional avenues to strengthen research programs in the College.
  8. Refer all committee action items to the Faculty Advisory Board (FAB) on an ongoing basis for FAB’s review, discussion and subsequent action, as needed.

This year, each standing faculty committee will be charged with reviewing relevant outcome measures from the college strategic plan. The measures which should be reviewed by the Research Committee include:

  • Trends in number of students graduating with research honors.
  • NIH/NIDCR Rank for dental schools.
  • NIH/NIDCR Rank for academic institutions.
  • Research dollars per faculty FTE assigned to research versus unfunded research FTE.
  • Direct and indirect grant dollars/square foot of research space by investigator, department, and center.
  • Percent of fully funded research effort by tenured/tenure accruing faculty.
  • Annual startup funds allocated.
  • Faculty survey of research administrative support needs.
  • Total publications in peer-reviewed journals annually.
  • Number of UFCD faculty participating in research projects with PIs from other departments, colleges or universities or vice versa.
  • New grants submitted/funded by quarter and fiscal year.
  • Total extramural funding (federal, non-federal, other).

The committee should evaluate performance on these measures and when appropriate, action plans for improvement should be instituted using the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle. The PDCA is the college’s model for outcomes assessment and evaluation.

Individual Faculty Member Responsibilities

The Research Committee meets on an “as needed” basis usually meeting up to six times per year. Meetings are 1 to 1½ hours in length. In addition to attending meetings, members are required to review proposals, seed grant applications, UF scholar applications, professorship award nominations, etc. as needed prior to meetings.

Time commitment: Approximately 1½ hours every other month for meetings along with additional time required to review materials.

Schedule of Meetings
