The National Research Resource for Imaging Mass Spectrometry (IMS) collaborates with a network of talented scientists, including partners and collaborators in private industry, universities, and research institutes around the world. This map represents some of the national collaborations with the Resource.
Collaborations with the Resource are initiated by submission of a brief research plan. The Collaborations Advisory Committee, comprised of senior faculty within the Resource, will review these plans with regard to: the appropriateness of IMS to solve the proposed problem, funding source, capabilities of the submitting principal investigator and team, the use of biohazardous and infectious agents, and the availability of resources to perform the proposed work. NIH-funded investigators will be given highest priority, followed by other federally funded investigators and those supported by non-profit research agencies.
