What to Expect

Our services are available to all faculty and research staff. Projects are prioritized by (1) large/complex or multi-institution ("team science") proposals, (2) early-career investigator support, and (3) single-investigator or small-team proposals (particularly for mid-career faculty). Depending on when you contact us, we may be able to provide a number of services from proposal review to small group facilitation to drafting of the Project Management Plan, Postdoctoral Mentoring Plan, Human Subjects or Vertebrate Animal Sections, Individual Development Plans, etc. We suggest that you contact us approximately three months prior to the proposal deadline. For large/complex proposals, earlier notification is appreciated. At a minimum we try to review a project's specific aims or summary page (or equivalent). 

There is no charge for these services. Contact the most relevant Associate to schedule, or send an email to ResDev@email.arizona.edu
