Development Core

What we do

The MPC Development Core increases the research productivity of MPC members and fosters new interdisciplinary collaborations in our five Primary Research Areas. To achieve these goals, the Development Core provides extensive member services in three categories:

  1. Comprehensive grant proposal and research development services at every stage of research development, from formulating hypotheses to agency submission, and support for four kinds of seed grants: Proposal Development Mentorship Grants, Proposal Development Pilot Grants, the Research Scientist Development Program, and MPC Research Collaboration Awards.

  2. Professional development activities to improve the skills and productivity of our members in writing proposals and research publications, producing effective presentations, and creating visualizations of quantitative information.

  3. Breaking down barriers and cultivating the exchange of ideas among researchers across the University through our regularly scheduled workshops and seminars as well as through the support and promotion of our five Primary Research Area collaboration groups.
