I was finding research funding options to be very complicated and confusing, until I stumbled upon the MICHR webpage… cue ray of light and angels singing. The resources on this page were exactly what I had been searching for.
That’s been really helpful, having outside observers really read through the grant and critique it. Sometimes on the departmental level it’s hard to get people to really read through a grant proposal thoroughly and the RDC is pretty great for that.
MICHR is an exceptional resource for UMHS research teams. As a clinical investigator, I've wondered whether I'm benefitting from the indirect costs charged to our grants. After working with MICHR, I know the answer is yes.
Assistance from MICHR was invaluable in negotiating the complex regulatory framework to create life-saving devices for children. Getting these devices to children would have taken years longer, if even possible, without stepwise guidance and early translational support from MICHR. MICHR's support has literally saved several children that would have otherwise passed away.
