The Research Administration and Development Unit assists all researchers in the School of Biological Sciences with developing and submitting proposals for sponsored projects and managing the resulting awards.


The Unit consists of three interfacing teams that support researchers at each stage of the sponsored project lifecycle: Research Development, Pre-Award, and Post-Award.

About Us

We help BioSci researchers navigate funding opportunities, brainstorm project ideas, and develop competitive proposals. We also support infrastructure acquisition and help fund facilities that enable cutting-edge research.

We work with BioSci researchers to prepare proposal budgets, complete sponsor applications, and coordinate the application submission with UCI’s Sponsored Projects Administration office.

We manage BioSci researchers’ sponsored awards throughout the project duration, including interacting with UCI’s Contracts and Grants Accounting.
