Catalyzing research. Enhancing funding success. Bringing new ideas to life.
The Office of the Dean for Research supports strategic, capacity-building efforts to secure external funding for research initiatives across the University. From introducing new faculty members to the research culture at Princeton to developing large-scale collaborative projects, we take a holistic approach to research development by nurturing the entire research ecosystem at Princeton University. We work in ways that are collaborative and inclusive, and ensure equitable access to opportunities and professional support.
“The Research Development team in the Office of the Dean for Research was professional, proactive, and exceptional throughout the process. I highly recommend them to any faculty member organizing a large collaborative grant.” – Rodney Priestley, Vice Dean for Innovation
