Office of Research Development

Proposal Development Services

Research Development accelerates collaborative proposal development among MUSC researchers who are considering the following grant mechanisms: program project, center, training and career development, shared research resources and instrumentation, and construction/renovation. The level of support provided by ORD depends on several factors, but in general the office assists with developing biosketches, resources and environment information, and preparing letters of support.  Contact us.
