Get A Grant, Share An Instrument
The NIH Biomedical Research Support Shared Instrumentation Grant program will now fund equipment that costs up to $400,000, an increase of $100,000 from 1989. But expect stiff competition for 1990's $32.5 million (The Scientist, Oct. 2, 1989, page 18). Applications must come from institutions with at least three investigators who plan to use the equipment and who already receive peer-reviewed funds from the Public Health Service. The equipment must be used 75% of the time for PHS research. These one-year, nonrenewable grants pay for the purchase of new, state-of-the-art equipment costing at least $100,000. The deadline is March 26. For more information, contact the Biomedical Research Support Program, NIH, Building 31, Room 5B23, Bethesda, Md. 20892; (301) 496-6743.
