A volunteer and collaborative effort to bring information about shared microscopy facilities to the University of Arizona and the community.

Call for Proposals - Advanced Imaging Center (AIC) at HHMI Janelia campus - Feb 1, 2024 deadline

Dear Colleagues - just a reminder that deadline for the next proposal call to access the instruments at Janelia Advanced Imaging Center (aicjanelia.org) is February 1, 2024 at 17:00 US Eastern Time.

The AIC makes imaging technologies and expertise developed at Janelia freely 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 spend one to two weeks (or longer if there is a justified scientific reason) at Janelia to conduct experiments on a microscope with the support of the AIC team.

The AIC is sponsored by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. 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, and external 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 visiting scientists, basic experimental reagents, technical support from our applications scientists, and scope time.

Learn more about the instruments available and how to apply at aicjanelia.org, and email aic@janelia.hhmi.org if you have any questions.
