Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Submission
[ORA] did an outstanding job assisting with the PCORI application.  This was not easy from a variety of factors… went out of their way to assist with the respective portions of the application, which made it possible to put together a complex application with multiple collaborators in a month.  This proposal was awarded by PCORI for $4M in 2016.

National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitatin Research (NIDRR) and CDC National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) submissions
I am incredibly grateful for the efforts of the Office of Research Advancement. It is a wonderful resource for UB researchers, and its contributions to this proposal cannot be understated.

National Science Foundation (NSF) Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy, and Water Systems (INFEWS) submission
We are extremely grateful for the help provided by ORA. It is incredibly time-consuming to prepare multi-organization proposals. ORA has practically prepared 140 pages of the proposal, while the PIs can focus on the 15-page Narrative.

Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) submission
Exceptional job in putting together a most professional package for this demanding submission that involved a budget of $2.72M and industry participation. Clearly, I would not have been able to do this without them!

National Institutes of Health (NIH) R01 submission
I am sincerely grateful to the ORA staff for assisting me on my NIH proposal. I will not be able to receive the $2.7 funding without ORA's most effective and strong support. My collaborators and I consider ourselves to be extremely fortunate to have been able to work with ORA staff and look forward to working with them again!

National Science Foundation (NSF) Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) Submission
The help I received was invaluable.  From a clear schedule to stay on track, to editing suggestions, to coordinating with SPS...everything was well executed.  The team was very helpful and knowing this service is available will likely increase the quantity of proposals I will submit in the future.
