Fostering growth and collaboration
We support interdisciplinary research collaborations and lay the foundation for sustainable research growth.
The Research Development Office (RDO) is a key unit within the Office of Research and Innovation (ORI). We assist with the strategic planning and development of large interdisciplinary research projects; identify and announce funding opportunities, coordinate the submission process for limited submission opportunities, and manage ORI’s internal seed-funding programs; and oversee the university’s Shared Core Research Facilities, Centers and Institutes, and industrial consortia.
