The Department of Pediatrics Research Administration Staff assists principal investigators in building and maintaining successful research programs. This includes navigating the intricacies of the research enterprise, both within the University of Wisconsin–Madison and externally through the myriad of other funding sources beyond the university.
The Department of Pediatrics Grant Success Program (GSP) provides a thorough review and feedback on a research grant application prior to submission in order to strengthen the proposal and enhance its probability of success. Draft aims should be submitted for GSP review at least 2 months in advance of the deadline and the full draft at least 1 month before the deadline. All proposals submitted to GSP will be partnered with a senior investigator for review. Department of Pediatrics investigators are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this service and, based on feedback from senior researchers, this review is required for Assistant Professors submitting a proposal for internal or external funding.
Please contact the research administration staff to coordinate placement with and review by a member of the GSP committee.
The Department of Pediatrics maintains a select group of core resources which supply expertise, equipment, and maintenance contracts. These cores complement those supported by the University of Wisconsin campus.
