Vice Chancellor for Research

Sandra A. Brown

Welcome to the wide world of research at UC San Diego. As you'll see from the diverse array of organizations and functions we oversee or support, the Office of Research Affairs plays a key role in the university's billion-dollar research enterprise. From our innovative and interdisciplinary Organized Research Units to the offices which manage the incredibly complex business of contracts and grants, we work, often behind the scenes, to ensure that faculty, postdoctoral scholars, staff and students have the resources they need to excel in scholarship, research and discovery.
