Vice Chancellor for Research - Aaron Dotson
Vice Chancellor for Research
Office of Research
1901 Bragaw St., Ste. 368
As vice chancellor for research, Dotson’s role is to support research and creative activity at UAA at all levels — from conception to completion and commercialization. To do that, the overarching Office of Research is divided into three functions, starting with the Office of Sponsored Programs, which helps researchers prepare project proposals and secure funding and awards for their work. Next is the Office of Research Integrity and Compliance, which works to maintain safety and ethicality on all projects while adhering to federal guidelines and considerations unique to Alaska. Finally, Seawolf Holdings looks to the future by supporting researchers with the licensing of intellectual property by securing patents and exploring possible commercial applications for their work. Ultimately, all three offices work in harmony to accomplish a single function.
