Functional Genomics Core Instrument Time Grants
In order to catalyze research activities on campus, help investigators collect preliminary data for grant applications, and support efforts to adapt or develop protocols to use the Functional Genomics Core's (FGC) instruments, the FGC will be awarding small grants to cover the instrument time costs in the FGC.
This program is open to faculty, post-doctoral researchers, research staff and graduate students. To apply, please send a brief (maximum of one page) explanation of your procedure and research goals to Matt Kaplan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals will be reviewed on a rolling basis. First round of projects will run March – June 30.
The Functional Genomics Core’s mission is to provide researchers at the University of Arizona with the capacity to run high-throughput compound, RNAi, and deletion library based screens for the purpose of network analysis, drug and/or target discovery. We will work with you to develop an assay, carryout a screen and/or analyze the data. The equipment in the laboratory is also available for general (low-throughput) use.
