Each member of our proposal support team is a certified research administrator (CRA). So, no matter who you work with, we are all knowledgeable about the complex nature of proposal preparation and submission across all funding agencies, plus the many regulations and policies that govern sponsored research. In addition, our research and proposal development coordinator is an interdisciplinary scientist with doctoral, postdoctoral, and entrepreneurial experience. His proposal development projects span DoD, NSF, DoE, and NIH.
