Instrumentation Grants Faculty Panel Discussion

Are you interested in applying for or want to learn more about instrumentation and equipment grants to support your research?The Offices of Research Development and Core Facilities invite you to join us for a 1-hour virtual panel discussion to hear from recipients of instrumentation grants. These types of grants can be an important resource to acquire critical equipment needed to support, enhance, and advance research collaborations across campus. Most of these grants require evidence of multi-user benefit.

This will be an informal session with past recipients of instrumentation grant funding from the NSF Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) and DoD Research/Education for HBCU/MSI Equipment/Instrumentation programs. Our panelists will include faculty and research scientists who will share their experience about the respective programs, discuss what reviewers are looking for, and answer questions from participants.

Join us on Tuesday, November 17, 1-2pm, via Zoom | Click here to RSVP (https://instrumentationgrants.eventbrite.com), (zoom link will be provided with registration confirmation). Most of the time will be devoted to Q&A.

If you are considering applying for instrumentation/equipment grant funding, you are encouraged to attend.
