106b Bond Life Sciences Center
Julia Rodriguez leads the Pre-Award team, which also include Grant Writer Patience Okiring. They support the proposal development of all Bond LSC investigators. This support includes, at minimum, guideline interpretation, budget development, compiling information, completing forms, internally obtaining approvals and contracting the sponsor, if needed.
Given sufficient time, they are able to provide more assistance such as: finding funding opportunities, building teams, developing non-scientific content and editing/proofing the complete proposal.
Julia focuses on supporting strategic initiatives and large center-type proposals. For all proposals and development, Patience Okiring serves as the first point of contact.
