“That’s been really helpful, having outside observers really read through the grant and critique it. Sometimes on the departmental level it’s hard to get people to really read through a grant proposal thoroughly and the RDC is pretty great for that.” – Srijan Sen, MD, PhD
“MICHR is an exceptional resource for UMHS research
teams. As a clinical investigator, I've wondered whether I'm benefitting from the indirect costs charged to our grants.
After working with MICHR, I know the answer is yes.”
– Keith Aaronson, MD, MS
“I was stuck, and you helped me get unstuck.” – Suzanne Cole, PhD
