Partner with Research Development

The Research Development team works in partnership with individual investigators, research teams and campus departments to solve societal problems and expand research impact at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. We offer a variety of services and resources to help faculty obtain funding to advance their research. Our work aims to foster collaboration across disciplines, identify strategic funding opportunities that align with faculty research strengths, build grantsmanship capacity, and provide strategic and hands on proposal development support to help faculty develop proposals that stand out from the competition. While we are always happy to review and edit proposals closer to deadlines, the most strategic way to use us is to work with us early in proposal planning phase.

How to work with us

Reach out via email, on teams, phone, or stop by in person at 341 Woods Hall.
