The Office of Research Development supports members in the development of cancer-focused manuscripts and grant proposals from conceptualization to the final submission. Team science and intra-programmatic, multi-PI projects are highly encouraged. The level of assistance provided during the development process varies based on the complexity of the project and the experience of the investigator(s), and the need for a team approach to develop the proposal.

Support is dependent upon staff availability and priority status. Priority is given to team science grant proposals and proposals in direct alignment with MCC’s strategic plan and research program aims.

Please submit your proposal support request according to the following time frames:

  • Research Grant Proposals (e.g., R01, R21, F31, Supplement, Foundation)
    • At least four weeks prior to the submission deadline without subcontracts
    • At least six weeks if the submission requires subcontract(s)
  • Multi-Component/Multi-Institutional Grant Proposals (e.g., U54, U01, P01, P20)
    • At least sixteen weeks prior to the deadline for team science and/or multi-component/institution submissions
  • Training Grants (e.g., K12, T32)
    • At least sixteen weeks prior to the deadline
    • At least twelve weeks prior to the deadline without Data Table support
  • Manuscripts
    • At least four weeks prior to targeted submission date
