Decades of Research Administration Experience
In 1994, OHSU researcher Christian Harker, Ph.D., wanted to spend less time faxing forms and more time on research. So he founded Cayuse, and using an SBIR grant, he created the industry’s first grant application software with system-to-system submission to Grants.gov.
Since then, Cayuse has developed an intuitive electronic research administration ecosystem under the guidance of a visionary leadership team. Through strategic acquisitions, we have brought leaders in-house with a collective 200+ years of industry expertise.
Today, we provide software solutions for sponsored project management, including pre-award and post-award, compliance, and animal facility operations. We also partner with the best complementary software providers and industry experts who can provide consultation and professional services to help organizations meet their strategic goals.
Scalable Solutions for Every Organization
Our customers include academic institutions, hospitals, pharmaceutical and biotech companies, government agencies, and non-profit organizations—with research budgets ranging from $1 million to more than $1 billion.
They use our intuitive, industry-leading software to improve collaboration between researchers and administrators, mitigate compliance risks, and save time.
All of Cayuse’s products are backed by our world-class customer service and support.
