Getting started with Cryo-EM: Writing the NIH Shared Instrumentation Grant Application - Strategies for Success

Sponsored by: Thermo Fisher Scientific

Event Date & Time

Date:  March 16, 2021

Time: 10:00am PDT



Scientific progress and breakthroughs today are often facilitated by the application of new technologies using high-end, cutting-edge instrumentation such as the new electron microscopes, which are often too expensive for most institutions to acquire. Each year, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funds millions of dollars to institutions and their federally funded investigators seeking high-end instruments that bring these resources as shared instruments to advance new discoveries. Specifically, the NIH’s High-End Instrumentation (HEI) Grant program (S10) encourages applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase or upgrade a single item of high-end, specialized, commercially available instruments or integrated systems that range from $600k to $2M. Such systems include but are not limited to X-ray diffractometers, mass spectrometers, nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers, DNA and protein sequencers, electron microscopes, cell sorters, high-throughput robotic screening systems, and biomedical imagers.


In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The purpose and boundaries of the NIH S10 High-End Instrumentation and Shared Resource Grant Programs and how to interpret the NIH Program Announcement
  • Specifics of Application Requirements: What goes in (and what does not) these grants?
  • Proven strategies for writing a successful S10 grant


The webinar will be given by Dr. Christopher Dant, a former investigator and faculty at Dartmouth and Stanford who will show you how to successfully win one of these S10 grants using the proven successful strategies used in the well-known Research (R01) grant application. NIH-supported investigators who wish to apply for purchase or upgrade of high-end, specialized, commercially available instruments or integrated systems should attend this webinar.




Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
