The Research Development Team was created to be a comprehensive service center for any researcher interested in submitting large, collaborative proposals.
Our team can manage the entire pre-award process, including budget and budget justification development, coordination of collaborators across campus, coordination of subawardees, project management, drafting management plans, grant editing and writing, etc.
No, we will work with all sponsor types.
A proposed budget should be at least $5 million total costs (direct and indirect) for the duration of the project.
Anyone eligible to serve as a Principal Investigator at JHU can work with us.
There is no cost to either you or your department for using RDT services.
Yes. At this time, RDT will not retain any recovered Indirect Costs for our services.
The COEUS record is developed under RDT’s cost center for tracking but changed to the PI’s cost center before award. We can provide access for department staff to view proposals in ASSIST, Workspace, FastLane, and/or COEUS.
Yes, RDT has designated representatives in JHURA, BARA and ORA.
Not at all. It is completely up to the PI. Your RDT grants manager will be in contact with the department as much or as little as needed. We are here to help support departments if they are unable to dedicate the time and effort it takes to submit a large, collaborative funding application.
Please notify us at least eight weeks in advance of your proposal’s due date.
At this time, RDT does not manage the submission of training grants. However, we can connect you with University resources to assist with collection of the university-wide data required for some training grant tables.
You can contact RDT and we will generate a list of researchers with similar research interests, or you can browse any of the following databases:
-At Johns Hopkins University, you can search by division through the Academics portal to find specific departments to contact.
-The Welch Medical Library offers access to databases like PubMed and Scopus, which you can search by keyword to find relevant publications.
–NIH Reporter allows you to search by keywords to find projects led by researchers from across the country. You can search for projects in your field of interest and then initiate contact with the PI to discuss potential collaboration.
A few ways to find announcements that encourage collaboration are:
-Search the word: “collab” in the search box on NIH’s Funding page. Various opportunities will populate that you can filter through.
-Browse the National Organization for Research Development Professionals’ (NORDP) Comprehensive List of Collaborative Funding Mechanisms. This resource was created, and is maintained, by NORDP members.
Whether you reach out in-person, by email, or via a phone call, you should start by expressing how it would be beneficial for both of you to collaborate. You should also show enthusiasm on how innovative the idea is and how it would push your field forward. If they agree, having possible funding opportunities readily available to share can move the conversation to something actionable.
