Seed grant proposals

The Center for Biomedical Research (CBR) plans to make available up to $40,000 from our annual budget to provide seed funding for up to four faculty members, especially the junior faculty, to collect preliminary data needed to compete for external funding.

You are invited to submit a two page (maximum) white paper to me (brow@mst.edu) by Friday, Dec. 14, 2018.  The two page limit does not include references, budgets, and budget justifications; matching funds are encouraged, but not required.

How to submit a proposal

New research equipment

Nikon A1R-HD Confocal Microscope (Eclipse Ti2)

The Nikon A1R-HD is a fully-automated confocal imaging system able to image in the X, Y, and Z planes with both a high-speed resonant scanner to capture the dynamics of a system and a Galvano scanner to maximize resolution in fixed samples.

Features include:

  • A large field of view, capable of a resolution below 200 nm
  • A sophisticated post-processing software to deconvolve and attractively display results
  • A 2D and 3D tracking system for particle tracking that can be set up to automatically track several regions of interest in a time series scan
  • View all specs and features

For training, please contact Kun Liu at liuku@mst.edu or 573-341-6146. Once you have completed training you can schedule a time to use the microscope.
