Expertise for planning and developing health research
IHSI’s Research Development team works directly with Illinois investigators to expand health sciences research. The team provides proposal development support, offers grant seeking workshops and resources, and coordinates campus-wide responses to local and national funding priorities.

Research Development Manager
“The ability to bring together two individuals who might not have known they had similar interests and similar research topics is always very fulfilling. I like when I am able to link researchers together and they continue that collaboration in pursuit of addressing health disparities.”
