The Core Facilities Pilot Program (CFPP) is designed to support three key types of activity within the RII-managed core facilities:
  • The development of new methods or techniques that would extend the standard operating procedures and capabilities of RII-managed core facilities and potentially impact multiple UA researchers;
  • The acquisition of preliminary data needed for extramural proposals;
  • The technical training of students conducting research under existing extramural funding.

Funding provided under the CFPP may only be spent within RII-ma
