Proposal Development

Technical and Skilled Proposal Development Support for Boston University School of Medicine Investigators

Proposal Development (PD) at BU School of Medicine serves to assist faculty and principal investigators in developing competitive proposals through providing:

  • Technical and skilled administrative support to faculty and principal investigators at BUSM: PD supports researchers by leading the development of the administrative components of the proposal preparation process, allowing researchers to devote their time and energy to writing competitive scientific narratives.
  • Grant Strategy Services: PD helps investigators develop and refine their proposals through coaching and editing services. Our goal is to work with faculty to craft clear and compelling scientific narratives and position their grants for successful funding outcomes.
  • Grant Preparation Workshops: In collaboration with the Associate Dean for Research, PD provides training services to help faculty navigate the research development process and learn to effectively communicate their research to funders.
If you are considering applying for a grant or contract, please contact us as soon as possible, ideally at least 4 weeks prior to the application deadline.
If you are a new or non-native English-speaking PI looking for help with your scientific narrative, please refer to our preferred timelines under Grant Strategy Services.
