Strategic Grant Development Services

Our grant team lead has consulted with teams netting over $153 million in grants and contracts for research and programs since 2013 (DCC’s founding) and is experienced working with both small domestic teams and managing large projects with international teams. The team includes experienced writers and editors from a number of clinical and research specialties and an experienced director of grants management.

We are experienced in US federal funding (including but not limited to NIH, AHRQ, HRSA, NSF, BARDA, DoD, SBIR/STTR), private foundations, PCORI, and European Commission opportunities. Our team works on a project basis, directly supporting and augmenting in-house funding development teams for a variety of clients, ranging from biotech start-ups requiring full pre- and post-award management to university-based research teams and departments needing support with discrete functions. 

Full pre- and post-award services are available, including (but not limited to):

  • proposal writing and editing
  • proposal and application review
  • project management
  • budget development
  • funding strategy development
  • research design
  • contract negotiation
