Large-Scale Grant Support


What is this service?

Competitive large-scale grants, particularly NIH U- and P-series awards, are characterized by integrated and strategic research team visions that leverage collaborative partnerships. Obtaining large-scale grant funding has far-reaching benefits for the investigator, the research team, and the institution. To encourage the pursuit of large-scale grants, MICHR has developed a plan of support that is available to investigators across the university.    

We can help with:

  • Strategic input: MICHR faculty grant experts can help you conceptualize a large-scale grant and advise on coordination of projects and cores, study design, biostatistics, and potential collaborators. Learn more.
  • Resources: MICHR grant experts can create tailored writing templates and provide you with guidance materials/examples for various components of the grant. Email us for assistance.
  • Grant editing: MICHR’s grant editor will ensure logic, flow, and clarity of ideas across the various components of your large-scale grant. Learn more about our grant editing service.
