Limited Competition: NIGMS Mature Synchrotron Resources for Structural Biology (P30 - Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages applications for support of “mature” resources at synchrotron facilities to provide user access to X-ray beamlines for structural biology research. “Mature” refers to the techniques made available at the resource beamlines; they must be well-established, requiring no significant novel technology development in order to provide utility to the communities they serve or to maintain them at the state of the art. This funding opportunity is limited to resources whose operations recently have been or currently are being supported by NIGMS funding. It is expected that the facility will be maintained or upgraded to current best practices, make its capability and availability known to the biomedical research community through outreach activities, and provide user training and support.

Application Deadlines: Oct. 11, 2022; Oct. 10, 2023; Oct. 10, 2024

PAR-22-166 Expiration Date October 11, 2024
