Get Started

Welcome!  The DoM-RA team is ready to help you get started. Our staff has the knowledge and resources to guide PIs through the research process from concept formation to commercialization.

It is easy to focus on just proposal development and submission when applying for funding, or the science of a project once it has been awarded; however, a PI’s research can take many directions after a concept has been conceived. To maximize the benefits of your research, the PI should maintain consideration of compliance, technology transfer and possible commercialization and economic development opportunities throughout the research.  Keeping an eye on the broader goals and impact of the research throughout the research process can open up opportunities not originally anticipated.
