Henry Jackson Foundation
To assist the University with its research mission, the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine (HJF) was authorized by Congress to carry out medical research and education projects under cooperative arrangements with USU. The University's Research Administration Office (REA) works in close collaboration with HJF to facilitate University research.
HJF works side-by-side with researchers at USU on more than 200 different research projects. More than 350 Foundation employees work at USU, in labs, USU facilities and in administrative and project management positions. HJF supports several education and research programs at the University, and funds both a research support award and a graduate fellowship program.
HJF provides administration services for many types of research programs, both federally and privately funded, including training grants, research career awards, investigator-initiated research program awards, responses to RFP/RFAs, cooperative agreements, program projects, contracts, subawards and CRADAs. Projects range from single PI-directed research programs to complex, multi-site clinical studies.
HJF facilitates both pre- and post-award research activities at USU, including assisting in research grant proposal submission, award management and close-out activities, hiring personnel, buying supplies, arranging travel, managing intellectual property and assisting in technology transfer. HJF developed an online Guide to Services that explains these and other HJF services in more detail.
For information about HJF's other services to USU, including management of education program and endowment funds, graphics services, clinical trial administration, and event planning, please visit the HJF website.
