Research Services

Pre-Award Services of SPH Office of Research Services

The goal of the SPH Office of Research Services (ORS) is to encourage, increase and support SPH investigator-led proposal development and to increase the success ratio for submitted propsals.

Description of Services

SPH ORS offers a menu of services (ranging from scientific grant review to budget development to "one-stop shopping") that investigators can choose from to meet their proposal development needs. We encourage investigators to contact the SPH ORS early in the process so that adequate time is available for optimal proposal development.

Our services include:

In addition, we have provided further details regarding the expected flow of documents during the proposal development process, timeline that SPH ORS follows, how proposals are prioritized, and information on the scientifc review process.
