Brooke A. Gowl

Associate Director of Research Development


Brooke Gowl has been a Research Developer for over 10 years, focusing on increasing faculty success in research and scholarship. She holds a doctorate in Neuroscience from the University of Cincinnati.

Following graduate school, Brooke progressed to postdoctoral training at the University of Michigan (UM) where, in addition to her research, she became involved in research development through writing a F32 NRSA proposal to fund her training and a NSF proposal on behalf of the Society for Neuroscience to establish programs at UM focused on increasing the number of women and minorities in the neuroscience faculty. Both of these proposals were funded, and these experiences led to the realization that she wanted to continue her efforts in research development and help other researchers to obtain funding for their studies and scholarship.

She worked as the Research and Program Grants Developer for the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, Athens, OH, for 2.5 years and as a Research Liaison Officer at the University of Houston for 8 years , first in the Office of Research Development within the Division of Research for just over 4 years and then as the research developer/administrator in the Graduate College of Social Work.

She understands the disappointments and rewards of acquiring funding and seeks to assist her colleagues in increasing their competitiveness in an extremely competitive funding landscape.
