The Research Fellows program was created this year as a mechanism through which senior UM researchers can gain research administration experience while devoting some time to help fellow researchers develop ideas, proposals, and partnerships to achieve greater impacts. Selection of Dr. Church was done through a competitive process, beginning with a call for Fellows applications in Spring 2011. We will continue to explore additional ways to facilitate sharing of individual experience and knowledge to enhance the research enterprise, through research our lunch series, online discussion forums, internal grant reviews, and other means. We welcome your suggestions on how best to accomplish this.
If you would like ORSP to help facilitate the development of an idea, white paper, or proposal draft into a competitive funding proposal, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
