What is the GFL Research Development Office?

Same faces, different mission. Formerly known as the GIOS proposal team, the GFL RDO team helps Sustainability Scientists & Scholars achieve sustainability research success. We now provide the infrastructure, leadership, training and resources to promote integrated scholarly activities and increase research competitiveness in the pursuit of external funding. Our activities include capacity building, strategic thinking, and fostering collaboration. Although our team no longer offers research advancement services, we are excited to still provide proposal editing to Sustainability Scientists and Scholars. We aim to increase faculty competitiveness by increasing faculty readiness, catalyzing people and ideas, and developing faculty research skills. Ann Marie Hess continues to lead the team, but now as Capture Manager, Rena Saltzman is Research Development and Project Lead, and Dana Desonie continues as Science Editor.
