Grant Proposals

If you plan to apply for a grant, you will need to meet  UCSD internal deadlines for submitting your application. The internal deadlines depend on where the work will be performed (UCSD campus, Moores Cancer Center or VA) and the scope of the proposed project. If you would like assistance from Urology's editorial office, please contact Eileen Silva, Senior Editor, as soon as possible. She will initiate the necessary UCSD requests, determine the UCSD internal deadline for your application, and assist you in organizing and routing the application for internal approvals before submission.

Grant proposals by UCSD investigators usually take the following path to the granting agency:
