Research Development (RD) is a dynamic field that encompasses strategic, proactive approaches to increasing faculty success in extramural research funding. RD activities include developing resources, such as workshops and toolkits, to support proposal writing; implementing mentorship programs; facilitating interdisciplinary collaborations, and managing efforts toward large-scale funding.

  • Keynote Speaker: David A. Stone, Ph.D. (8:00 AM - 9:00 AM)
  • Getting Started in RD (9:10 AM - 10:00 AM)
