The Office of Research Development (ORD) was established at CSUSB with funds made available by the Extramural Associates Research Development Award (EARDA) through the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The goal of ORD is to enhance faculty and student research at CSUSB, particularly in health-related, biomedical and behavioral research. Funding through EARDA ended in 2011, however, ORD continues to assist faculty and students with funds made available by the Biomedical/Biobehavioral Research Administration Development (BRAD) Award through NIH.
We work closely with the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) to identify and disseminate information about external health-related funding opportunities matching the research interests of faculty. We also provide assistance in proposal development and grant writing, as well as opportunities for pre-reviews by previously funded faculty members. ORD is dedicated to helping researchers become successful in their pursuit of funding opportunities.
We always welcome your questions, so please do not hesitate to contact us!
