Office of Research - Core Laboratory/Shared Instrumentation Fund
The Core Laboratory/ Shared Instrumentation Fund supports acquisition of shared instrumentation — including equipment, datasets, and repositories — that enables major research endeavors in the sciences, medicine and engineering, as well as non-STEM fields, and provides USC researchers with greater access to shared equipment and key resources.
This solicitation invites proposals from core facilities for the acquisition of equipment, datasets, computing resources and repositories (Type A) or from those seeking external funding where a match/cost share is required (Type B). The fund is not intended for purchase of computers, unless they are integrated with other types of instrumentation.
Awards under this program are made through a competitive peer-reviewed process. All equipment supported under this announcement must be made available to the entire university community and proposals must include a list of users/user base to be competitive.
If you are experiencing technical issues submitting your proposal or have additional question, please contact the Office of Research Initiatives and Facilities at ORIF@usc.edu
This portal requires information about the PIs (and Co-PIs) in addition to department and contact information, including the 10-digit USC ID#, Gender, and Ethnicity. Please have this material prepared before beginning this application.
