The Texas Medical Research Collaborative (TexasMRC) Grant Program
The Texas Medical Research Collaborative (TexasMRC) Grant Program is intended to enhance opportunities for internal funding that would be matched with the TexasMRC Proof of Concept Gift Fund in order to conduct applied medical technology research. The University of Texas at Arlington, University of Texas at Dallas and The University of North Texas Health Science Center, together with Texas Instruments and the Texas Health Research & Education Institute (THR) have come together to create the Texas Medical Research Collaborative (TexasMRC) to provide funds to initiate collaborative research to develop medical technologies in critical healthcare areas. Proposed research programs should be in areas of interest to these institutions and suitable for sustained external funding (federal, state, private, etc.). The total amount of funds available for this program is expected to be at least $750,000. The funding period is one year. A letter of intent is due January 31, 2014. More information can be found here.
Office of Grant & Contract Services (OGCS) works with University faculty and staff throughout the campus in the identification of potential funding sources and development of proposals for sponsored projects in all areas such as research, education, training, curriculum development, equipment acquisition, public service and, occasionally, institutional and departmental activities.
The sponsored project may be in the form of a grant or a contract. In the pre-award phase of administration, GCS is responsible for the final review of all grant proposals to make certain they conform to the current regulations of the University, State, and Federal guidelines, and the potential sponsor before they are signed by a signatory officer of the University. All contracts and agreements for sponsored projects are also negotiated and signed by our office.
The staff of Grant & Contract Services is pleased to have an active role working with the faculty and staff of the University in the complex process of proposal preparation and sponsored program administration. You may contact the Grant & Contract specialist member assigned to your area for assistance.
GCS activities are divided into two phases: pre-award and post-award.
- Pre-award: In this stage OGCS works closely with the faculty and staff to help them identify funding opportunities and develop proposals. OGCS reviews final proposals prior to submission to make certain they conform to the current regulations of the University, the State, and the potential sponsor before they are signed by an authorized individual of the University.
- Post-award: Upon receipt of an award from a funding agency, OGCS initiates the internal paperwork to establish a University account. OGCS works with the principal investigators, the University administrative offices, and the sponsor to ensure that the project is carried out in compliance with the conditions of the award, and monitors the project until it is completed and the final technical and fiscal reports are submitted.
OGCS staff takes an active role in proposal preparation and sponsored program administration. We work with the faculty and staff to help them with this complex process.
