Groupe de soutien à la recherche

The Research Support Group (RSG) at NOSM provides assistance to all faculty, staff, students, and residents involved in research endeavors, and equips all researchers with the tools and guidance needed for success. The RSG understands that research is a time consuming, complicated, yet a rewarding undertaking, As NOSM continues to grow, the RSG is committed to assisting faculty and learners who are interested in research. Whether it is working to secure grant funding through assistance with the grant application process, developing realistic and accurate budgets, providing support with informed consent and conflict of interest, or navigating researchers through the Research Ethics Board (REB) and newest Tri Council Policy Statement Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS2 2014), the RSG is committed to ensuring that all researchers have access to the guidance they need to be successful.

Most research programs require the hiring of additional personnel, and the RSG is here to help. The RSG can assist with this process by informing and providing researchers with the various internal and Lakehead University and Laurentian University forms, as well as assisting with room bookings, interview questions, and policies and procedures for hiring at NOSM and at our host institutions.

Finally, the Health Sciences Library offers an array of supports and services to researchers, including assistance with literature searches, preparing systematic reviews or meta-analyses, citation management, and individualized one-on-one research consultations.
