NCCAT Proposal Central
Accepting User Proposals to the National Center for CryoEM Access and Training (NCCAT)
We announce the opening of general user proposal (GUP) and training proposal (TP) access categories for limited early access to instrument time.
The GUP1 early access program supports single particle cryoEM data collection on one of our existing Titan Krios instruments using a Gatan K2 direct-electron detector. The GUP2 cycle supports use of Chameleon (the commercialized version of Spotiton) and an exploratory screening microscope session. Lastly, the TP cycle supports facility manager training and embedded training. Additional classes of proposals will be opened when the new NCCAT wing at NYSBC completes construction (expected the summer of 2019).
We have a quarterly call for proposals. Deadlines are: Dec 1, 2018 for 2019-cycle1 | Jan 1, 2019 for 2019-cycle2 | April 1, 2019 for 2019-cycle 3 | July 1, 2019 for 2019-cycle4 | Oct 1, 2019 for 2020-cycle1 .
NCCAT is committed to an open and transparent application process to ensure equal-opportunity nationwide access.
