It’s hard to believe, but 2021 is already here: a new year and a fresh start. Here are this year’s important U.S. research proposal deadlines to note. This isn’t an exhaustive list—some federal departments list grant opportunities on their own sites, and some solely use grants.gov—but hopefully it’s a useful starting point. For the most comprehensive database of global funding opportunities, with 22,000+ worth a total of $70 billion, check out Fund Finder . And if your research organization could use help finding or applying for funding , we can help. (Check out all of our pre-award apps here .) NIH R01 deadlines for 2021 National ...

Research administration isn’t a glamorous job. It requires a lot of behind-the-scenes work that’s not always in the spotlight, yet absolutely crucial to a research organization’s success. It takes dedication, persistence, and ultimately a heart of service to take care of details and support the rest of the research team. After all, without RAs, researchers wouldn’t get the funding and help they need! It’s this spirit of service that sets apart Holly Goold, Veterinary Technician Manager at University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. Over the past several years, Holly has had a profound impact on both her team and organization, as well as other animal ...
