Office of Research Administration

The mission of the CSBS Office of Research Administration (ORA) is to promote and assist CSBS research in general, and extramural funded research in particular. The ORA is the first point of contact for CSBS faculty research projects whether the prospective funding sources are federal, state, local, or private organizations.

Research Development Services

Research development services are designed to assist faculty in developing and pursuing an active research agenda. As competition for federal and foundation funding increases, and as extramural research support become increasingly important in faculty promotion, research development services provide support in four broad categories:

  • Developing An Active Research Agenda
  • Preparing Effective Proposal Narratives
  • Responding to Reviewer Feedback / Preparing Resubmissions
  • Workshops
