Mayo Clinic Metabolomics Resource Core now accepting applications for pilot and feasibility grants
Mayo Clinic is one of six federally funded Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Cores (RCMRCs) to support medical research using metabolomics. The Mayo Clinic Metabolomics Resource Core is accepting applications for pilot and feasibility grants to enhance the integration of the techniques offered at Mayo Clinic. The Metabolomics Resource Core provides extensive services for metabolomics research with specific expertise in mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy utilizing stable isotope tracers to examine metabolic flux. Our facility specializes in measurement of targeted metabolites such as amino acids and their metabolites, fatty acids and their metabolites, ceramides, citric acid cycle substrates, and phosphometabolites.
This pilot and feasibility award opportunity is available to investigators at any institution, not just investigators at Mayo Clinic.
Deadline - the application deadline is Saturday, March 15.
This opportunity is made possible through the Mayo Clinic Metabolomics Resource Core grant (U24DK100469), one of six federally funded Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Cores (RCMRCs) to support medical research using metabolomics—the study of how molecules are metabolized at the cellular level. The purpose of the RCMRC program is to facilitate institutional development of pioneering research, metabolomics training, and outreach programs in this emerging area. The other five RCMRCs offer slightly different technologies at their sites, and their funding opportunities can be found on the Mayo Clinic Metabolomics Resource Core website under “More Resources.”
Investigators interested in this opportunity are encouraged to find out more about eligibility criteria, application instructions, and the review process as well as contact information for questions on the Mayo Clinic Metabolomics Resource Core website.
