As we close the first month of 2010, it is time to get your pencils sharpened and submit proposals for new shared instruments.
The National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) announced that it has $43M to fund equipment purchases in 2011. With this money, NCRR expects to make approximately 125 new award for instruments that cost at least $100,000 but less than $600,000. NCRR proposals are due March 23, 2010.
In addition to NCRR, the National Science Foundation (NSF), through its Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) program, has $90M to make 150 awards of between $100,000 and $4M for shared instrumentation. MRI proposals are due April 21, 2010.
