The Office of Research at the University of Washington maintains a number of helpful tools for researchers and their teams to support pre- and post-award grant processes.
These tools include the Researcher’s Guide, which was created to offer a one-stop shop for learning about and navigating the UW grants process. The Researcher’s Guide includes a glossary of key grant terms, grant life cycle overview, grant writer’s reference, and links to key steps such as IRB review, SAGE, and the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP).
OSP’s home page explains how to submit proposals and establish awards at the University of Washington. It also contains a helpful directory of common acronyms and abbreviations encountered in the UW grant process.
The University of Washington Health Sciences Library (UW HSL) provides resources, instruction, research expertise, and individual assistance to ITHS staff and to current University of Washington students, staff, and faculty, regardless of location.
Many of the web-based resources described in the three toolkits are freely available. Those resources licensed for people with University of Washington Net IDs are marked with a “lock” icon.
The UW Biomedical and Translational Sciences Librarian offers consultations and individual assistance with a variety of topics, including:
UW HSL librarians also offer workshops and instructional sessions. These can be tailored to meet the needs of small or large groups. Topics could include describing your research impact, locating experts and collaborators, finding medical genetics information, or staying on top of the literature in your field. “Smarter Searches: Advanced PubMed Tips for Researchers” is an example of such a seminar.
