COVID-19 Updates

Visit UC San Diego's Coronavirus portal for the latest information for the campus community.

Dear Colleagues, 

The Health Sciences Sponsored Project Pre-Award Office will remain open and operational and will continue to provide service to our department partners, faculty, academics, physicians, and scholars. Because of the evolving situation with COVID-19 and because the health and welfare of our staff and their families is of highest priority, we are providing our teams with the flexibility they need in terms of telecommuting while maintaining our commitment to our clients and the organization. We expect some adjustments as we adapt to operating in these uncertain and rapidly changing times, and we appreciate and thank you for your understanding and patience. Please note, these workplace adjustments will not impact your ability to reach out to your current HS SPPO contacts who will continue to be available to help.

If you have any questions, please e-mail  

Erika Wilson
