Research and Development

Welcome to Cal State L.A.’s
Office of Research Development Website

The Office of Research and Development (ORAD), a unit of the Office for Research and Academic Personnel in the Division of Academic Affairs, provides research development support services to the university community. ORAD helps Principal Investigators identify external funding opportunities, and provides assistance at every stage of proposal development. To ensure the highest conformity with University and Federal policies, ORAD provides support and guidance for compliance issues related to the use of human subjects and animal subjects in research, conflicts of interest, and research misconduct. As the products of research come to fruition, ORAD assists PI's with intellectual property and technology transfer processes.

ORAD also highlights and supports campus research activity by administering the Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity Award program, the Student Symposium on Research Scholarship and Creative Activity, Seed Grants, Research Seminars at ORAD Cafe, a quarterly newsletter, and the campus research magazine, Research at Cal State LA. Through these activities, ORAD increases opportunities for faculty and students to engage in research, scholarship and creative activities, supporting the academic mission of this comprehensive university.

Take advantage of our resources and links for faculty and students interested in our programs and services. From forms to frequently asked questions, we want to provide you with current information you need.
