Institutional Strategic Planning
Our mission is to work with institutions and scientific researchers to develop effective, coordinated strategies that maximize their strengths and capitalize on diverse opportunities. With institutions, we help to develop a formal strategy for an effective research enterprise. For researchers, at every stage of their career, we provide expert, experienced-based training and mentoring. We focus on providing researchers with the knowledge and skills to assist them in creating successful grant applications, presenting science effectively, and developing careers, with special expertise in navigating grants and programs from NIH, as well as other federal agencies and private foundations.
We work with colleges, universities, research organizations, and professional societies to develop customized seminars, one- and two—day workshops, multi-week grant writing courses, plus small group and individual (institution or personal) consultation. Our goal is to advance the skills and careers of students, trainees, and faculty and as a consequence strengthen the research capacities of the organizations where they study and work.
