Request for proposals at the Advanced Imaging Center (HHMI Janelia Research Campus) - November 2017

Dear Colleagues,
We are now accepting proposals from scientists who would like to conduct experiments at the Advanced Imaging Center (AIC) at Janelia Research Campus. The deadline to submit a proposal is 11:59 p.m. (US eastern time), January 15, 2018.
The AIC makes imaging technologies developed at Janelia available to the scientific community before the instruments can be purchased commercially. Scientific investigators from nonprofit organizations anywhere in the world may apply to use the facility.
We encourage applications from researchers who are addressing significant scientific questions that require measurements of cellular/molecular behavior at spatial and/or temporal resolutions that would only be possible for them through access to the AIC.
Under the program, visiting scientists will spend 1-2 weeks (or longer if there is justified scientific reason) at Janelia to conduct experiments on a microscope with the support of the AIC team. The currently available microscopes are:
The AIC is jointly sponsored by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation (GBMF). Proposals will be evaluated based on scientific merit through a two-tier review process by AIC/Janelia scientists and by a review panel of scientists from HHMI/Janelia, GBMF, and extramural imaging experts. 
Scientists whose proposals are selected are responsible for travel arrangements to Janelia. The Janelia Visitor Program will cover the cost of lodging for the visiting scientist, basic experimental reagents, technical support from our applications scientists, and scope time.
Email or me with direct inquiries.
Please help us by spreading the word to your colleagues. Additional information about the instruments and instructions on how to apply is available on the AIC webpage. You can also download instructions (pdf)
