One of the most time-intensive tasks for research faculty is securing funding for their projects. Stanford University in California has found a way to streamline the process through the creation of DoResearch, an online portal where faculty and centers can find comprehensive information and upload applications for funding more easily.
The DoResearch portal lists internal and external funding opportunities, including feeds from grants.gov. It features a faculty directory, a library of documents and university policy information, and an option to receive alerts when submitted documents need to be updated. Administrative staff and principal investigators also use the site for training, in everything from the proper use of animals as research subjects to research ethics.The portal is located at doresearch.stanford.edu.
