Resources for Proposal and Grant Development

The Office of Research Development in the Division of Natural Sciences identifies proposal and funding opportunities of interest to natural sciences faculty and provides pre-award support for grants - particularly large, complex, interdisciplinary, and/or multidisciplinary proposals - including proposal development, editing, formatting, and submission support.  Research Development is available to assist faculty with coordinating complex projects across Natural Science departments, other schools, University Institutes, units at Duke and beyond.

The Office of Research Support, under the guidance of the Vice Provost for Research, oversees several administrative areas for research:

  • Grants, Contracts and Compliance
  • Funding Opportunities
  • Human Subjects Protection
  • Export Controls
