To enhance the use and utility of URMC cutting-edge Core Instrumentation, especially among Early Stage Investigators and/or New Users, CFAR offers funding "vouchers" for direct application to the instrumentation that best suits research needs. Applications will be considered only for work that is not included in the Investigator's (or collaborators') current internal or external funding sources. Priority is given to innovative research proposals supported by excellent rationale and with potential for high impact. Experiments must be completed within 6 months of award date, and are not renewable or transferrable. A brief summary of work completed is required by the awardee at project completion. To learn more about our voucher program, please contact Jennifer Lynch.
