Proposal Preparation and Routing Information
Faculty who are preparing and/or routing grant/contract and IRB/IACUC proposals must follow all School of Medicine and University-level procedures.
Information on preparing grants and contracts per University policy can be found on the Grants and Contracts Office (GCO) website. Submissions must be received by GCO at least five working days in advance of the deadline for submission. Allow an additional five days for the Dean’s Office to complete a review prior to forwarding to GCO.
Steps in Submitting a Grant/Contract:
- Once you have identified the funding opportunity and decided to pursue it, email the Grants and Contracts Office and the Associate Dean of Biomedical Research and include the funding opportunity and the deadline for submission in your email.
- Prepare the budget in collaboration with the MUSM Finance Office.
- Prepare and route (obtaining the required signatures) the University’s Proposal Transmittal Form.
- When you have a draft of your specific aims/equivalent and research strategy, contact the Associate Dean of Biomedical Research to request an internal grant review.
IRBs and IACUCs
Information on preparing IRB and IACUC protocols per University policy can be found on the Office of Research Compliance (ORC) website.
