NIH 2017 S10 Programs - SOM Call for Internal Proposals

The NIH S10 program encourages applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase or upgrade a single item of expensive, specialized, commercially available instrumentation or an integrated system. Types of instruments supported by S10 funding include, but are not limited to X-ray diffraction systems, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and mass spectrometers, DNA and protein sequencers, biosensors, electron and confocal microscopes, cell-sorters, and biomedical imagers.

New this year: Shared Instrumentation for Animal Research (SIFAR) grant program.  The SIFAR program supports requests for state-of-the art commercially available technologies needed for NIH-funded research using any vertebrate and invertebrate animal species. It is expected that the use of the awarded instruments will enhance the scientific rigor of animal research and improve the reproducibility of experimental outcomes for research that uses animals or related materials such as animal tissues, cells or germplasm.

Vanderbilt University School of Medicine (SOM) investigators from both VUMC and VU departments who intend to apply to any of the three S10 programs should submit an internal proposal for review. An internal proposal is required for approval to submit the grant. Proposals submitted on behalf of or in collaboration with an SOM core facility or shared resource will be prioritized for matching funds. SOM leadership will work with the Vanderbilt University Vice Provost for Research office resolve any conflicts between potentially overlapping proposals from SOM and Vanderbilt University as a whole, and determine priority for SOM matches.

  • Shared Instrumentation Grant (SIG) program announcement: PAR-17-074.  Budget range for the SIG: $50,000 - $600,000.

SOM S10 Internal Proposal Form

Internal proposals are due no later than 5 p.m. on March 31.  Late submissions may be ineligible for matching funds.  Contact Susan Meyn in the VUMC Office of Research at s.meyn@vanderbilt.edu with any questions about the program requirements, eligibility, or institutional process.


VUMC S10 Citation - Voucher Award Program

We invite investigators who have published data produced using VUMC S10-funded equipment to submit publication citations for these S10 grants. The list below identifies the list of eligible VUMC S10 awards over the past five Federal fiscal years (2011 - 2016), for reporting in this program.

  • For each verified citation, investigators will earn a $250 voucher redeemable in a VUMC institutional core facility of choice.
  • In addition, for each verified citation, investigators will be entered into a drawing to win a $1,000 voucher redeemable in a VUMC institutional core.
  • Eligible equipment, S10 grant numbers and suggested citation language for each are listed below.

Please submit citations or any questions to Susan Meyn in the VUMC Office of Research:  s.meyn@vanderbilt.edu
