We enable Large-scale, Interdisciplinary initiatives for the most innovative science and the greatest impact 

 The Research Development Support (RDS) team within the Office of Research is a key strategic partner for faculty across divisions in the pursuit of funding for visionary, large-scale interdisciplinary research centers.

We offer support during the entire pre-award timeline – from a nascent idea to curated federal funding calls to project management across institutions to the proposal submission. We also administer the Big Ideas Generator (BIG) seed funding program, coordinate the internal competition for limited funding opportunities, and manage the appointment of affiliated researchers into the UChicago Consortium for Advanced Science and Engineering (CASE).
