Proposal Development Manager
Richard Cecil is the Proposal Development Manager of the Basic Sciences Team in Research Development Services. Together with other members of the Basic Sciences Team, he works with faculty on all aspects of pre-award administration, from finding funding opportunities to re-writing outdated Facilities & Resources descriptions. Richard’s research admin career began accidentally, when he fell into a temporary clinical trials finance assistant job at UCSF’s cancer center in 1998. Since that time, he has led a peripatetic work life, moving between pre- and post-award positions from the West Coast (UCSF) to the East Coast (Georgetown), back to the West Coast (OHSU) and finally—once again—back East to Georgetown.
