Research Development in the Office of Research
The Research Development team in the Office of Research (OR), is charged with advancing and supporting sponsored research across all of UCI. We are especially focused on large or complex, interdisciplinary projects that involve multiple faculty, departments or research units.
Our team works with and supports individual school Research Development Officers (RDOs), as they work with their faculty to develop winning grant proposals. We also work closely with the Corporate and Foundation Relations team in UCI Advancement which provides support for non-federal funding program opportunities.
Identifying Funding Opportunities
We have gathered a curated list of funding search tools that cover the gamut of research sponsors: government, non-profit, corporate and international.
Proposal Development, Advice & Strategy
The Directors of Research Development (RDOs) across campus work with faculty to help with funding searches, provide grantsmanship advice and provide other support in proposal development. Need help? Please contact the RDO in your School to set up a meeting. If your School does not have an RDO, please contact Director of Research Development Michael Gallo.
Workshops & Events
Throughout the year, Research Development offers programming on how to develop competitive proposals for specific grant programs. The Office of Research also co-sponsors many workshops and events geared toward increasing funding success for all UCI researchers.
