Research Development

The OVPR Research Development (RD) team oversees campus-level initiatives that promote research collaborations, including the campus-wide research grand challenges initiative, Bridging Barriers. The team also provides competitive intelligence and tactical proposal development support to cross-college teams of researchers pursuing center grants and other major external funding. Research Development works closely with the Vice Provost for Faculty Development to provide faculty development programming with a focus on research collaborations and research leadership. We provide a vast menu of investigator skill building workshops and webinars to prepare UT researchers to be more competitive in their grant seeking, and we manage several key institutional research relationships with external partners.
