NIH- Biomedical/Biobehavioral Research Administration Development (BRAD) Award

The Biomedical Biobehavioral Research Administration Capacity Development (BRAD) Program (G11) promotes the establishment of rigorous and externally supported biomedical and biobehavioral research and/or research-related training programs by providing support for strengthening institutional research administration infrastructures.  This program provides training in NIH policies and procedures through distance learning and an NIH Residency Training Program.  Additionally, funds are provided to strengthen existing or facilitate the establishment of new research administration infrastructures such as Offices of Sponsored Projects (OSP), Offices of Research and Sponsored Projects (ORSP), or components of such entities. The goal of the BRAD program is to enable eligible institutions to develop research support infrastructures that will facilitate the thorough oversight and administrative management of extramural grant awards, foster and facilitate ongoing research activities at the institution, and serve as the main organizational entity for the technical development of grant proposal submissions and oversight.  For more information, go to:
