Research Development Process

What we do:

  • Align research interests/capabilities with funding opportunities
  • Provide support for early career researchers
  • Enhance research opportunities for UCSC graduate programs
  • Facilitate development of large scale initiatives and new centers
  • Implement a proactive and coordinated RD approach that ensures that proposals are competitive, complete, compliant, timely, and successful. 

What we offer researchers:

Our Research Development (RD) goal is to allow researchers to focus on their professional aims while we steward the proposal submission. We can help you plan months, if not years, in advance to match funding sources to your research needs and professional trajectory. The earlier you contact us about an opportunity you would like to pursue, the better we can assist your proposal efforts.
