  • Help with biosketches
  • Editing and proofreading grant components
  • Help with documents such as letters of support
  • Access to boilerplates, examples, and templates
  • Guidance on setting up and conducting multi-site clinical trials
  • Support for single IRB, recruitment, and retention
  • Timeline setup and management
  • and more!

UPDATE: GSU and TIN staff are working remotely until further notice. However, we remain committed to assisting our researchers. Please email us at to set up an online appointment.

GSU and TIN services are offered free of charge. 

We look forward to discussing how we can help support your grant application! More about the GSU can be found on the CTSI website; for TIN info, please see our flyer
