RII Core Facility Pilot Grants - August 2, 2024 deadline

Date of publication

Description: The RII Core Facilities Pilot Program is designed to support three key types of activity within the RII-managed core facilities. Each CFPP proposal will be evaluated on scientific merit and feasibility, and should focus on one or more of the following activity types:

  1. The development of new methods or techniques that would extend the standard operating procedures and capabilities of RII-managed core facilities and potentially impact multiple UA researchers. Successful projects will result in new methods or techniques which will be disseminated to the UA research community via the core’s website, and be incorporated into the core’s standard operating procedures and capabilities.
  2. The acquisition of preliminary data needed for extramural proposals. Successful projects will result in at least one new extramural research proposal. PIs must note the specific extramural funding opportunity announcement for which they plan to submit and their anticipated submission date along with their CFPP application. A full justification of the anticipated studies is required.
  3. The technical training of students conducting research under existing extramural funding. Successful projects will result in student researchers with the technical skills to operate equipment safely, efficiently and independently within the core facility(ies). PIs should note the student(s) to be trained, the core(s) in which they will be trained, the equipment on which they are to be trained, and the funding source under which the student’s research project is funded. Proposals to train students from traditionally marginalized groups will be given funding priority.

Due date: August 2, 2024 at 5pm

Data Retention Policy

AZGC will share project data with users via iLab Operations upon service completion. In the case of Illumina Next-Gen Sequencing data, AZGC will transfer ownership to researchers using Illumina Base Space Sequence Hub (BSSH) or provide a physical hard drive containing your data. Once Next-Gen data ownership is accepted in BSSH or by accepting a physical data drive, AZGC will no longer possess a copy of this data.

Researchers are responsible for downloading and backing up data generated by our core. AZGC is not responsible for the retention of data beyond three months from the date of data generation.

All data generated using AZGC services will be shared with only the requesting researcher and their PI.  The data will not be presented without permission from the researchers.

Policy

Material Retention Policy

The Arizona Genetics Core will keep project materials on-hand for 3 months after data is returned / project is completed. After 3 months, all samples and materials will be disposed of in keeping with our SOPs. If you would like to receive your materials back from us please arrange with Arizona Genetics Core during the project planning stages. If you have questions about this policy please contact our facility.

Policy

Sample Intake Policy

All samples provided to the Arizona Genetics Core (the facility) must be collected and transmitted in compliance with all applicable State, Federal, and Tribal laws, statutes, regulations, and rules. It is the responsibility of the submitting party to ensure all samples satisfy this requirement and by submitting work requests and related samples to the facility the submitter warrants that the collection and transmittal of all samples are in compliance with any applicable laws, statutes, regulations, and rules. If at any time, the facility learns that any sample is not in compliance with the above it reserves the right to discontinue any further work on said sample.
