An initiative launched in 2016 by the Office of Vice Provost for Research (OVPR) and the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), Research Development Services (RD) was established to provide dedicated services to help faculty pursue large, collaborative, team science-focused awards. RD catalyzes capacity-building activities, research collaboration, diversity, and pipeline growth, which complements the administrative management of proposals by grant administrators.
