UCI’s Shared Facilities



The Cancer Research Institute curates a repository of boilerplate text about shared facilities that faculty can use for their grant proposals.


California Grants Portal

The California Grants Portal is a single website to find all grant opportunities that are offered on a first-come or competitive basis by California state agencies. You can search for grants based on applicant type, grant category, and application deadline and receive email updates when there are new grant opportunities in a specific category. Grants are automatically added to the website when a state agency registers a new opportunity before the solicitation process starts.

Biosketch Guide Using SciENcv

NSF applicants are encouraged to create their biosketch via a web tool called SciENcv. NIH applicants may also use SciENcv.

The following is a comprehensive guide to using SciENcv from UCI Libraries. 

Team Scholarship Acceleration Lab

Many challenges in scholarship require assembling teams, either large or small, to take them on. But effective team scholarship can be a challenge to create. This team science site offers a guide to making such efforts more successful.

Research Bulletin

Research Bulletin is a curated list of resources and announcements that BioSci faculty may find useful to advance their research programs. Research Administration and Development and Marketing and Communications gather these resources and announcements from federal sponsors and through UCI community tips. They are then shared in a regular email bulletin. Because they are hand-picked, the resources and announcements are tailored for faculty and researchers in BioSci.

Statistical Consulting

The School of Biological Sciences provides statistical consulting and reviews.

Funding Internal to UCI and Bio Sci

Several campus entities solicit applications to support research.

Help with grant development

UCI has various entities that help with research development and submission of grants.

Finding funding opportunities

Information about funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) are available at several locations.

  • Office of Research provides links to various resources.
  • has a Search Grants tab that lists the federal government’s open funding opportunities.
  • PIVOT is a funding database that lists open calls for proposals.

Limited Competitions

UCI Review posts details about limited competitions for funding opportunities that place a cap on the number of proposals submitted by UCI.
