Welcome to our Organization!

We are here to help you navigate the turbulent waters of research funding, development, and advocacy. Our organization helps you build your institutional culture to support research—whether that is improving grantsmanship skills, fostering collaborations, managing large multidisciplinary research projects, connecting researchers with one another, or helping to mobilize discovery and knowledge into the world. Our role is to provide research development professionals and their allies, both seasoned and brand new, with the tools for practice and the intellectual substrate for transforming how we think about our contributions to the research enterprise. We are pleased to welcome you to NORDP, a professional organization specifically created to meet your interests and needs!

Best regards,

Gretchen Kiser, Ph.D., NORDP President
