The Grants Submission Unit (GSU) supports the grant application process, with particular emphasis on large and complex grants. Tools and services may include provision of grant writing outlines and detailed checklists of required components, project management and multi-site coordination, review and editing of grant narrative for consistency, clarity and responsiveness to the FOA.
In the cases of large proposals that advance the goals of CTSI, GSU provides hands-on management of the grant-writing process, including collecting biosketches, drafting and soliciting letters of support, and compiling resources and other boilerplate text.
The UCLA Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) Grants Submission Unit (GSU) has put together a number of tools and resources to clarify the new requirements for NIH applications regarding human subjects and clinical trial policies—and subsequent changes to the SF424 (Forms Version E or FORMS-E)—for applications on or after January 25, 2018. The resources are meant to help guide you through the requirements, based on the type of studies you are proposing within your application.
