Lab Renovation/New Lab Grant

If you require the help of DOR's proposal team, make sure you send an email with the request to at least five business days prior to the deadline.

The vice president for research and provost have initiated a program to invigorate the University research enterprise through targeted investment in the renovation of existing labs or the creation of new small labs. The purpose of the program is to support the core research infrastructure of the University's research enterprise through targeted investments in laboratories that would permit submission of competitive external research proposals.

Although a proposal can be submitted for any research area, applicants are expected to demonstrate relevance to one or more of the five institutional thrusts. It is not expected that the lab’s entire focus be in a thrust area, but that relevance to one of the thrusts can be demonstrated.

Prior approval from all Chairs and Deans of departments and colleges for which a PI or Co-PI is identified in the proposal is required, and signed letters indicating approval must be attached to the proposal.

Program Paused in FY24.
