The Large Grant Development Program (LGDP) in the UCSF Research Development Office can help investigators navigate through the rough waters of developing and preparing these complex research proposals. The program's highly trained staff of the can be involved at every step of the proposal process, including early-stage scientific discussions, the collection and writing of common institutional language, late-stage technical editing, and proofreading. This high level of involvement ensures that each proposal — no matter how complex — is a cohesive, consistent and clear presentation of your science.
Are you currently using spreadsheets to track the status of your proposal, but run into version control issues and/or are looking for something better? If so, we recommend you check out Airtable, the UCSF Research Development Office's preferred project management tool for proposal development.
This free(!), online project management tool gives you the power of a super-flexible database to connect all aspects of your proposal development process —and design the perfect workflow—all in one place.
