Strategic Research Initiatives
The College of Natural Sciences Strategic Research Initiatives office works with teams of college faculty to identify, develop, acquire and manage multi-investigator center grants and institutional training grants from external funding agencies.
Strategic Research Initiatives also represents the college’s interests in cross-college and university-level matters related to research funding, such as managing limited-submission proposal processes, fostering cooperation in cross-college pursuits of major funding, and establishing policies for grant-related issues.
Strategic Research Initiatives is directed by Dr. Jennifer Lyon. For more information about how Strategic Research Initiatives can help you secure your next major center grant, please visit the links below or contact Jennifer to schedule a meeting at your convenience.
