Research-on-a-Napkin Consulting


BERD members (and affiliated faculty, possibly) make themselves available to meet with researchers interested in submitting a funding application for selected pilot RFAs.

Internal Funding Programs Consult Sessions

  • Take place 2-4 weeks before the application submission deadline
  • Applicants interested in this service are slotted a half-hour time slot to present and discuss the working draft of their proposal
  • Participants receive immediate feedback from the full panel of BERD scientists 
  • There is no required commitment by the presenting investigator nor the BERD scientists
  • Creates a casual, no-pressure environment which often results in multidisciplinary team formation
